This course will teach employees how to use ergonomics in industrial settings to reduce injury. Employees will learn how to identify ergonomic risk factors, potential injuries and methods to minimize or eliminate ergonomic hazards. This course is intended to provide Canadian general-industry employees with the ability to identify and improve ergonomic conditions for themselves in the workplace and assists employers in complying with local, provincial and federal OHS requirements.
