Description

The objective of this course is to familiarize you with ergonomics.  Our goal is to have you be able to recognize ergonomic deficiencies at your installation and be able to develop solutions to minimize or eliminate these identified deficiencies.  Further value from this course can be obtained by supplementing this training with the hands on experiences of cite assessments and task analysis with a day or two of face-to-face onsite training.  If you are interested in your facility or installation receiving this ergonomic training please contact us at usarmy.apg.medcom-phc.mbx.army-ergonomics@mail.mil.  Finally if you are a nurse or industrial hygienist we may be able to offer you continuing education points.  Please contact us if you are interested in learning how to obtain the points.

At the completion of this course students will be able to:

1. Define ergonomics and determine how ergonomics affects a variety of workplace environments
