Laboratory Ergonomics Program discusses the need to set up work areas correctly, as well as how to minimize the strain of using laboratory equipment, tools and instruments. Many of the activities performed in a laboratory can exert stress and strain on muscles and joints… ultimately causing significant injuries. To work safely and maintain good ergonomic health, employees need to know how to avoid movements and work patterns that can be harmful. Areas covered in the program include parts of the body most susceptible to ergonomic problems, arranging work areas to minimize stress and strain, working from neutral positions, most and least stressful types of body movements, proper lifting techniques, effective stretching exercises, and more. The program comes with a comprehensive leader’s guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training certificate and training log. This program is one of 12 in the Laboratory Safety Training Series.
