The science of ergonomics demands that the job, no matter as a car technician or office administrator, fits an individual's physical capabilities and limitations. Movements like bent wrists, pinched grips and unnatural twists challenge your innate capabilities, and can take a significant toll on your body.
The training video, Basics of Ergonomics, accordingly delineates simple solutions to modify workspaces, equipment, positions and postures to remove the threat of injury. This aligns with OSHA's guidelines, which recommend moving the body without stress so as to prevent painful and numbing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
Through incident reenactments, the program thoroughly defines ergonomics, its importance in the workplace, as well as the five risk factors that trigger MSD injuries.
Ergonomics is about how we move, and how our bodies respond to pressures and postures on the job. As the video suggests, maintaining neutral body movements can help reduce these stresses, and thereby make for a healthier work environment.
