Industrial ergonomics applies to all work environments, such as those found in manufacturing, engineering, and construction. Some tools often demands total body involvement to operate; not just fingers, arms, and hands. These operations may require standing or sitting in one position for extended periods of time, repetitious movements, or excessive force; this causes Static Posture. Stationary postures or excessive movement of any type can stress the spine and, depending on the actions needed to operate the tool, can cause neck and back problems. Static posture and stationary posture can both lead to Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs) if left untreated. Our "Industrial Ergonomics" training programs cover recognizing ergonomic problems, potential adverse effects and pragmatic solutions employees can use to address to these problems. It focuses on potential ergonomic problems in manufacturing, assembly and warehouse situations. Topics covered in these products include: Physiology of the body, Parts of the body most affected, Eye strain, Pragmatic preventative measures, Correct use of office equipment, Exercises and stress release, and more.
OSHA's Position On Industrial Ergonomics Training
When it comes to industrial ergonomics, OSHA has specified a number of suggestions that pertain to preventing employee injury from repetitive movements and lengthy posture/excessive force job requirements. Many of these suggestions are in the form of proposals that are expected to become OSHA’s mandatory regulations, in the future. Since Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs) can manifest as long-term chronic ailments, this can translate not only to individual suffering, but missed work hours and sizable medical expenses. In order to address these common situations, we have compiled a comprehensive set of ergonomic training videos and tools. The subjects that are covered in these training materials include:
- The anatomy and physiology of the skeletal system and injury risks
- Back Safety
- Industrial Ergonomics Issues
- A Complete Ergonomics Training Video Set
- Manufacturing and Office-related Ergonomics
- And many other ergonomic training topics.
In addition to our ergonomic DVD training videos, we also offer other training tools that can assist your new employee training programs or your refresher seminars. These include; CD-ROM Format training courses, Line Supervisor Handbooks, Booklets, Posters and other training tools, including a complete Ergonomics Training Package (which saves research time as well as being economical)! By becoming aware of the potential risks and warning signs of ergonomic-related injury, chronic pain and loss of time on the job can be avoided. It’s up to employers to protect their employee’s health and also to curtain the associated expenses that come with musculoskeletal damage by providing the proper training.
