This one-day workshop focuses on ergonomics specifically for laboratories. The content focuses on:
- Risk determination/identification
- Risk assessment
If you work in a laboratory, you are at risk for cumulative trauma injuries because of the repetitive nature of pipetting, the use of small hand held tools, prolonged awkward postures at a microscope, and other factors.
You will learn to identify ergonomic hazards and assess risks associated with them. By becoming adept at determining the prudent practices, protective facilities and equipment necessary to minimize the risk of ergonomic hazards, you can improve employee comfort, productivity, job satisfaction and reduce the likelihood of injuries.
