Many jobs in the healthcare and dental environments require standing on your feet for long periods or lifting heavy objects. These and similar activities can lead to discomfort or injuries if ergonomic precautions are not taken seriously. It is the intent of OSHA for employers to identify and implement appropriate equipment and procedures to reduce or eliminate ergonomic hazards. Training employees is a fundamental part of the ergonomic process. This course explains basic concepts for the musculoskeletal system and associated disorders that can occur in the workplace such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendinitis. It also provides detailed information on preventative measures to help employees avoid musculoskeletal injuries.
