Ergonomic Trained Person Course (Initial ERA): Initial Ergonomic Risk Assessment Course
ABOUT THE COURSE
Ergonomics is the science of making the work environment fit the worker. By understanding the Ergonomics requirements of work, we can avoid work-related illnesses or injuries.
Companies are in business to bring a product or service to market, and anything that makes it more difficult for employees to perform their jobs is likely to affect productivity—and productivity is money. A mismatch between the physical requirements of the job and the physical capacity of the worker can result in musculoskeletal disorder (MSDs). This issue should be addressed appropriately in line with the organizational safety and health policy as well as the requirement stipulated in the Section 15 and 24 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994. Efforts to reduce the incidence and severity of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) could provide a number of financial and productivity benefits to the organization as well as leading to an early reporting and injury avoidance.
