This course is designed to assist supervisors, health and safety managers, and others who are responsible for implementing ergonomic principles into their workplaces. It will help them reduce the risk factors associated with the development of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

Participants will develop an understanding of the process of designing, modifying, or organizing tools, materials, equipment, workspaces, tasks, jobs, products, systems, and environments to match the mental and physical abilities and the limitations and social needs of all people in their work environments.

The aim of the training is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills needed to implement safe improvements in quality, productivity, usability, and profitability of the services they provide to their customers and the work processes conducted by the workers.
