Ergonomic Training Courses
Ergonomics is the science of designing the workplace, keeping in mind the capabilities and limitations of the individual worker. Poor workstation design leads to fatigued, frustrated and injured employees. This causes lower productivity, and increased absenteeism and presenteeism. Many companies opt to send a responsible employee on the Visual Display Screen Equipment (VDU) Assessors course so that they can assess the set up of the colleagues Display Screen Equipment (DSE) or office workstation. This is wise, as the HSA report offices as having the second highest rate of occupational illness, the majority of which are musculoskeletal disorders caused by poor ergonomic design. However, should you wish to attain an externally accredited certificate or you have a different type of workstation, the Ergonomics Essentials course is more suited to your needs.
