Workplace Ergonomics Training for Employees and Businesses
Raising employee awareness of onsite and remote workplace ergonomics promotes wellness, safety and productivity.
Better everyday decisions
Ergonomics enables employees to design and arrange their workspace to be more comfortable, efficient and safe to use to reduce physical stress and increase mental focus.
Ergonomics covers these topics and more:
- What is ergonomics
- Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) risk factors
- MSD signs and symptoms
- Ergonomic control methods for reducing MSDs
- Employer & employee requirements
Benefits of Workplace Ergonomics Training
Practicing good ergonomic habits can help lower the risk of injuries and musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) caused by repetitive movements, awkward postures and forceful exertions. Training employees on how to apply ergonomic safety principles in various work environments can help improve safety, reduce chronic pain and discomfort, while enhancing productivity and lowering the costs associated with employee injuries.
Employees who receive ergonomic training are better equipped to identify ergonomic risks and make modifications to their work environment to minimize those risks. They gain insights and techniques to help reduce the strain on their bodies while performing work tasks that can result in neck pain, back pain, eye strain and headaches. This can lead to decreased absenteeism and higher job satisfaction, which can translate into improved productivity and better employee retention.
Raising ergonomics awareness at work also aligns with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) employer and employee responsibilities to reduce MSDs cited under the General Duty Clause of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act), Section 5.
By implementing ergonomic best practices and providing proper training, organizations can comply with OSHA standards, improve workplace safety and promote a positive work environment that supports employee wellbeing and productivity.
