0.00

NISO is facilitating and promoting a series of free on-line webinars hosted by the HSA on Practical Ergonomic Risk Assessments.

The webinar will demonstrate practical ergonomic risk assessment tools that can be used to identify and manage risks of musculoskeletal disorders in all sectors.

Ergonomics aims to design tasks so that people can perform their work within their capabilities, protecting their musculoskeletal health while enabling them to work more efficiently.

Attendees will gain an insight to practical risk assessment tools to quantify ergonomic risks. They will also gain an understanding of the importance of controlling risk through the introduction of innovative engineering solutions or by changing the way work is planned and organised.

The webinar includes case studies demonstrating the application of practical approaches to risk assessment and problem solving through worker consultation. The case studies also detail the tangible benefits arising from the interventions by way of reduced risk of musculoskeletal injury or ill health, improved human performance and productivity.

Please note that the Mac Tool will be needed to be able to participate fully in these two webinars. Links can be found by clicking Description below.
