Course Detail: ERGO - 2 Day Ergonomic Evaluator Training

This training will equip safety managers, safety leaders, and safety teams with the knowledge and experience necessary to evaluate non-office workstations and task to determine the presence of ergonomic risk factors and make recommendations to reduce targeted risk factors. Participants will be expected to bring video of a workstation task that they would like to analyze to the course. This two day course will include the following: 1.Introduction to Ergonomics2.Fundamental Ergonomics Model3.Ergonomic Evaluation Process Flow4.Human Capabilities:a.Body anatomy and structureb.Body and force capability measurements (with activity)c.Range of motion (with activity)5.Consequence of Overloading the Human System:a.Muscular systemb.Vascular systemc.Cumulative Trauma Disorders,d.Cognitive / Psychological consequences6.Ergonomic Risk Factors:a.Non-occupational risk factorsb.Occupational risk factorsc.Neutral working postures (seated, standing, all body parts)7.Data Collection:a.Employee and Manager inputb.Records Reviewc.Observation and Walkthroughd.Workstation Data measurement and collectione.Materials Handling Data Collection8.Analysis Methodologies:a.Video Analysis (Simplified Ergonomic Checklist)b.Posture Analysis (RULA, REBA)c.Materials Handling Analysis (NIOSH Lifting Equation, MAC, Push/Pull Analysis, Psychophysical analysis)d.Summarizing Analysis9.Work Design Guidelines (developing recommendations):a.Workstation designb.Types of ergonomic changesc.Complexity of changed.Timing of changese.Guidelines for Workstation designf.Sitting v.
