To work safely and maintain good ergonomic health in the lab, workers need to know how to avoid movements and work patterns that can be harmful. This training discusses the need to set up work areas correctly, as well as how to minimize the strain of using laboratory equipment, tools and instruments.

Areas covered in the training include the parts of the body most susceptible to ergonomic problems; arranging work areas to minimize stress and strain; working from "neutral" positions; discovering the most and least stressful types of body movements; proper lifting techniques; and effective stretching exercises.

How it Works:

After you have gained access to the course you are ready to begin your training session.

All courses use video to present at least 90% of the course material. Most courses involve you in the instruction by asking you to make decisions and express your opinions. As you complete each lesson the computer determines your understanding of the key learning points. These "quizzes" are not like the ones you dreaded in school. Our questions help discover areas where you need review and reinforcement.
