This program is designed to provide a basic understanding of human factors engineering, otherwise known as “ergonomics,” and the implementation of a successful ergonomics program. Upon defining some key terminology and discussing some background information, this seminar will then identify common ergonomic disorders and primary risk factors. The importance for building a case for implementing an ergonomics program and the elements of an ergonomics program will also be covered. Attendees will then learn how to perform incidence rate calculations followed by a presentation on MIOSHA’s ergonomic initiatives. Additionally, ergonomic risk factor identification will be emphasized through use of a video and a class exercise. Another class exercise will present methods for analyzing workplace records to establish the need for implementing an ergonomics program. Attendees will also be provided with a variety of ergonomic resources.
