Ergonomics Trained Person (ETP) Course for Advanced Ergonomics Risk Assessment

Ergonomics Trained Person (ETP) Course for Advanced Ergonomics Risk Assessment

Ergonomics Trained Person


  • Department of Occupational Safety & Health (DOSH) had released the first version of new guidelines called Guidelines on Ergonomics Risks Assessment at Workplaces. The purpose of these guidelines to provide a systematic plan and an objective approach in identifying, assessing and controlling ergonomics risk factors associated with a work task and activities in the workplaces.
  • As mentioned in the guidelines, the person authorized to conduct the ergonomics risk assessment is a “Trained Person” who has undergone the required training modules. This workshop is an approved Ergonomics Trained Person Course for Initial ERA and the contents fulfill the requirement as mentioned in the guidelines.

Aim for The Workshop

  • This THREE (3) days workshop is designed to enhance the knowledge of the participants in driving improvement in the OSH performance industry specifically in the area of ergonomics.
  • This workshop intended to expose the participants to the practical applications of the Guidelines on Ergonomics Risk Assessment at
    Workplaces in industries. For this workshop, the focus is on how to conduct an Advanced Ergonomics Risk Assessment.
  • This workshop focus on how to correctly use ergonomics risk assessment tools to assess particular ergonomics issue. It includes an in-class practical session on applying these ergonomics risk assessment tools by using video case studies.
