Ergonomics in Industrial Environments

Ergonomics in Industrial Environments (33 min.) This course outlines the approach most commonly recommended for identifying and correcting ergonomic problems. It provides basic information that will be useful for employers, workers and others in designing effective programs to prevent Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs) in an industrial environment. This course addresses one of the most prevalent and costly safety and health problems in the modern workplace and provides useful information for putting a program into place.
