Beyond the Pandemic: The Impact of Ergonomics in the Biotech World

A recorded virtual seminar event

Ergonomics is Vital to Every Scientists' Health and Productivity

The Pandemic has significantly impacted the Biotech and Biopharma world by driving innovation and production not seen in over 100 years. With this drive for change and innovation comes a price.

Scientists are working harder than ever in the laboratory environment to find a cure for COVID and other diseases.

Exposure to musculoskeletal risk factors are prevalent:

  • Hours of work in the lab performing assays
  • Prolonged sitting at the microscope
  • Manually holding a pipette at the biosafety hood
  • Lack of workstation adjustability
  • And more

If you are a lab scientist or manage scientists, understanding the impact of posture, force and repetition is essential. Exposures to these risk factors affect the back, neck, wrists, and eyes, causing mental and physical fatigue. Gone unchecked and unmanaged results in expensive work injuries, work interruptions, and lost productivity.

Join Ergonomics and Physical Therapy Expert Alison Heller-Ono PT, MSPT, CPE, as she explains how to reduce ergonomic risk and hidden exposures in the laboratory.

You will leave with tips, strategies, and actions you can apply immediately to reduce your risk of ergonomic injuries in the laboratory when you attend this timely virtual seminar.
