Ergonomics for Workplace Safety, Quality and Productivity

Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention in the Workplace

Course Description

Did you know: Musculoskeletal injuries are the highest injury category in BC workplaces, making up one third of all injuries. Whether it’s sitting at a desk all day, repetitive movements, or lifting, our work can have a damaging effect on our bodies. The good news is, this damage can be prevented with a greater focus on ergonomics.
