2021 Winter & Spring Schedule
Home & Office Ergonomics
Ergonomics is a hazard for all employees. The risk factors are the same whether you are currently working from home or in the office. Here are some suggested solutions to common problems and how to adapt them in both an office and home environment.
Oh How We Forget: A Lesson in Complacency - Hazards are present in both the home and office environment. Statistics show that more people get hurt at home than at work annually. We cannot afford to be complacent whether you are working from the office or at home.
Over the years, how we work has changed. Many times we are asked to do more with less. We work more and longer hours many times with fewer resources. Compounded with our busy personal lives, fatigue is a huge risk factor. In this training we offer solutions to reduce your risk of being hurt on the job due to fatigue.
As the weather warms up and we put the cold winter behind us, remember that with warmer weather come new hazards. Join us to learn how to keep yourself, your loved ones, and your coworkers safe in spring.
