Course Description

Like the rest of us, have you been wondering what ergonomics exactly is? Ergonomics explains why, after a long shift at work, your neck aches, your knees hurt and your wrist feels sore, and you sit there wondering why your body seems to have been replaced by an 80 year old’s. We spend hours everyday in our workplaces, but we spend almost no effort in making sure we are comfortable in these spaces. Workplace ergonomics is not just the new trend with cool chairs and desks, but instead its a lifestyle change that you need to make instantly. This course is specially designed to help you understand just exactly what ergonomics is, and how to identify whether you’re at risk or not. We’ll discuss all the ways that you can change your workstation so that you can go home without any pain in your body and live a long comfortable life with a healthy body.
