Ergonomics Team Training
This class introduces the group to basic ergonomic principles and addresses topics such as: musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and other ergonomic-related problems, identifying and prioritizing ergonomic stressors, determining root causes, analysis techniques, developing appropriate control measures, cost justification, and design criteria. The course is designed to address issues within the company and mixes lecture and laboratory to allow all participants to apply techniques. The course length is determined by the goals of the team and can range from eight hours up to two days. I can be available for specific intervals (e.g. weekly, monthly) to perform the necessary tasks to keep your ergonomics team efforts moving forward.
 
Supervisor Training
This two-hour session introduces supervisors to the basics of ergonomics including MSDs, controls, cost benefits, and other topics. The goal is to provide the supervisor with a basic background in ergonomics in order to facilitate communication between the ergonomics team, health care provider, and employees.
 
Employee Awareness Training
Training the employee population involves a one-hour training presentation geared to their specific work environment. These presentations address fundamental ergonomics awareness, information on MSDs, early reporting of discomfort, workstation and equipment design and usage principles, work methods, ergonomic aspects of personal accommodation, and whole life activities such as diet, clothing, wellness, and fitness.
