Derived from two Greek words—“ergon,” meaning work, and “nomoi,” meaning natural laws—ergonomics is the scientific field of study which informs the optimal design of workspaces to ensure workplace safety, comfort, and productivity. In this one-module course, business owners and managers are introduced to the key concepts to be borne in mind when setting up and maintaining the physical office environment which will maximize the well-being of white collar workers and minimize the risk of work-related injuries.
Many people associate workplace hazards and injuries with construction sites, manufacturing plants, and other blue-collar environments. However, serious injuries can occur in white-collar offices as well: according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), approximately 76,000 office workers in the U.S. suffer disabling injuries each year; the most common being falls. This three-module course will teach you how to avoid falls, repetitive motion injuries, and lifting injuries, explain what to do if there is a fire in your workplace, and discuss safe handling procedures for hazardous materials found in office environments.
