Ergonomics is an applied science which studies how to match the job to the worker. Ergonomics is concerned with preventing pain and injuries related to factors such as pace of work, the strain on joints and muscles, and the effects of posture. This course provides a practical introduction to office ergonomics, focusing specifically on issues and injuries related to the use of computers and other office equipment.
The goal of the course is to give you information to help apply ergonomic solutions in your workplace.
Note that this e-course on its own may not meet training requirements for office ergonomics in all jurisdictions. It should be supplemented by further instruction and hands-on training that is specific to your jurisdiction, job, worksite and equipment.
Average time to complete this course is 40 - 60 minutes.
Upon completion of the course and passing a final, multiple-choice exam, learners will be able to print a certificate of completion.
