Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) result when there is a mismatch between the physical capacity of workers and the physical demands of their jobs. Each year 1.8 million workers in the United States report work-related MSDs such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and back injuries. About 600,000 MSDs are serious enough to result in workers having to take time off work to recover. The solution to these injuries lies with ergonomics, the science of fitting the job to the worker. This course may help reduce the number and severity of MSDs caused by exposure to risk factors in the workplace.
After taking this course, you will be able to:
Identify the signs and symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and recognize the office activities that lead to these disorders
Use an awareness of ergonomics to set up a workstation to minimize MSDs
Use an awareness of ergonomics to minimize injuries while working in awkward postures or doing repetitive tasks
Employ stretching techniques, physical exercise, and an ergonomic program to minimize MSDs.
