Tim McGlothlin, MS, CPE, FIISE will deliver the workshop Reducing Overexertion Injuries: A Prerequisite for World-class Safety at the Carolinas AIHA Fall 2018 PDC/Conference in Myrtle Beach, SC on September 26-27, 2018. Here is a short description of the workshop:
Overexertions continue to be the leading cause of disabling injuries at work. Representing nearly one quarter of all injuries, these overexertions are generally associated with lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, and carrying tasks. Organizations cannot be truly world class unless they can identify and reduce these manual materials’ handling issues. This workshop shows the attendee how to evaluate the effectiveness of potential solutions prior to implementation. Finally, the workshop looks at future control measures including the use of exoskeletons.
