: Ergonomics is the science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of the working population. Work is made up of many little tasks, and these tasks can lead to worker injuries if they are not executed in a safe way. Workplaces that understand this and incorporate principles of ergonomics have fewer work-related injuries and happier employees. The course will discuss ergonomics, how to apply it to the workplace, and OSHA’s role enforcing workplace ergonomics.Instructor Description
