Course Description

Ergonomics (Construction) Online Course

Overview

Construction work is physically demanding. Workers often need to lift, stoop, bend, kneel, twist, stretch, and repeatedly perform other physically awkward tasks. Constantly pushing the body past its natural limits can lead to work-related musculoskeletal disorders. This is why ergonomics plays such an important role in preventing injuries on-the-job.

This course explains the role ergonomics should play in maintaining safety at a construction work site. This includes identifying the types and causes of work-related musculoskeletal disorders and explaining the tools, equipment, and work practices employees can use to prevent them.
