The Worksite International Ergonomics Training Academy offers two tracks of learning: An Employee Track and a Professional Track leading to Certification.
Our employee ergonomics training's in office, lab or on the shop floor is an essential component of learning safe work practices - and it should not be optional. Most employees don't know how to adjust a chair, where to put the keyboard tray or desk height for seated or standing work, or even how to use a mouse correctly, which could lead to injury, poor work practices, fatigue, errors, and lost productivity.
Give employees the knowledge, skills and proficiency they need to work correctly and safely. All courses are available live at your location or by an online, self-paced, interactive learning experience. Your employees will experience real-world and problem solving scenarios, simulated risk and consequences to better understand relevant ergonomics concepts.
