Ergonomics for the Laboratory

Course Description:

Have you ever come home from work with a sore back, stiff neck, pain in your shoulders, pain or stiffness in your wrist or hands, or aching feet from standing for long periods? Most of us have experienced these aches and pains and may think little of them. However, if allowed to continue, these minor conditions can become severe, leading to chronic pain, lost work time, and even debilitation. We need to take the aches and pains that occur at work seriously and start doing all we can to prevent them. That’s what this training session on Ergonomics for the Laboratory is all about.
