Course Description

Our workplaces are full of hazards, and one such hazard is the risk of developing a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) due to subjecting parts of your body to awkward positions. Using proper work practice controls in both an office and industrial setting can help prevent these kinds of injuries from occurring. Learn about those practice controls, as well as what factors increase your odds of experiencing this kind of injury, through the information presented here. This course explains the signs and symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders. The course then demonstrates work practice controls for certain parts of the body, including the neck and back, arms and shoulders, and hands and wrists. Finally, proper lifting and carrying techniques to reduce your risk of an injury are also shown. Utilize this course and learn how to use proper ergonomics to reduce the risk of suffering a musculoskeletal disorder.
