Industrial Ergonomics - SS1082IE (9 min.)
Description
The official definition of Ergonomics is this...to apply engineering controls and scientific principles when designing a work environment that accommodates the employee in relation to the workplace, product, equipment, tools, workspace and organization of the work. The objective of ergonomics is to fit the task to the worker, rather than forcing the worker to adapt to the existing conditions. To put it simply, ergonomics is about making your job more user friendly. This video does exactly that and along the way you’ll learn how to prevent CTDs and other cumulative injuries by recognizing the warning signs before they cause pain and discomfort. The Goal? Fewer injuries and CTD's, improved productivity with less time off the job due to ergonomic injuries, and an overall better quality of life, on and off the job.

Understanding & Controlling Ergonomic Risk Factors - E4761S SPANISH
Description
Ergonomics can be complicated, but this program provides a simple explanation all employees can understand. Ergonomic controls are used in almost all workplaces to prevent musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), often called cumulative trauma disorders or repetitive stress injuries. Workers often ignore the signs and symptoms of these disorders until a chronic condition has developed and they often don’t know the measures they can take to prevent them. That’s the purpose of this program–to explain what ergonomics and musculoskeletal disorders are and the measures your organization takes to control ergonomic risk factors. More importantly, the program reviews work control practices that workers can follow to prevent musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses. It also features both office and industrial settings to illustrate important lessons about ergonomics.
