Virtual and On-Demand Training

We offer a wide-range of virtual training, including all of our standard onsite classes:

We are now offering two computer-based, on-demand training classes:

Industrial Ergonomics Recognition Training

This course contains three (3) different 15-20 minute modules that will introduce you to the basics of industrial ergonomics.

WHO:  This course is intended for managerssupervisors, and employees that work in industrial environments.

WHY:  To understand the basics about ergonomics in order to Recognize, Evaluate, and Control ergonomic risk factors in the workplace that impact your individual health and safety, performance, and business operations.

HOW LONG:  This course should take you a total of ~45-minutes to complete all three (3) modules.  At the end of each module, there will be a retention quiz.  You must complete the course and successfully pass all 3 quizzes to get credit for this course.

Office Ergonomics Recognition Training

This course contains three (3) different 10-20 minute modules that will introduce you to the basics of office ergonomics.

WHO:  This course is intended for any employee that works in an office environment.

WHY:  You need to understand the basics about ergonomics in order to Recognize, Evaluate, and Control ergonomic risk factors in the workplace that impact your individual health and safety.

HOW LONG:  This course should take you a total of ~45 minutes to complete all three (3) modules. At the end of each module, there will be a retention quiz. You must complete the course and successfully pass all 3 quizzes to get credit for this course.

Computer-Based Ergonomics Awareness Training

We can help create a customized, computer-based training (CBT) course for your employees and/or supervisors and managers. This Industrial or Office Ergonomics Awareness Training is to provide a basic understanding of ergonomics, MSDs, the client’s ergonomics process and the employee’s role for successful process implementation. These classes can be broken into customized modules and integrated into your company’s CBT system.

In the Ergonomics Awareness for Employees training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe elements of the client’s ergonomics process and how individual employees can support it.
  • Define ergonomics and why it is important.
  • Define MSDs.
  • List MSD symptoms, and explain the importance of early reporting.
  • Explain the appropriate steps for reporting WMSD symptoms.
  • Identify ergonomic risk factors that contribute to WMSDs.
  • Explain the importance of working in neutral postures and how it impacts risk.
  • Describe simple approaches to improve ergonomics in the industrial or office environments.
  • Demonstrate proper lifting techniques and body mechanics.

In the Ergonomics Awareness for Supervisors and Managers training, participants will be able to:

  • Explain management’s role of supplying appropriate ergonomic resources
  • Define ergonomics and why it is important.
  • Define MSDs, list MSD symptoms, and explain the importance of early reporting.
  • Explain the appropriate steps for reporting WMSD symptoms.
  • Identify risk factors that contribute to WMSDs.
  • Explain the importance of working in neutral postures and how it affects fatigue.
  • Describe the types of medical intervention appropriate for WMSD treatment and management’s role in medical management of injured employees
  • Describe simple approaches to improve ergonomics in the industrial or office environments.
  • Describe the appropriate use of engineering controls and administrative controls

These classes can be customized to a length that makes sense for your employees and your company’s ergonomics program.

Ergonomics Training for Small Business Warehousing

Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) in Small Business Warehousing
Employee training will include defining ergonomics, it’s benefits, signs and symptoms of MSDs, the importance of early reporting, ergonomic risk factors in the workplace, and simple ways to avoid such risk factors in the warehousing environment, including body mechanics and work methods techniques. This workshop is about one hour in duration.

Supervisor training will include the same topics as the employee training with added emphasis on the costs associated with poor ergonomics, the physiology of common work-related MSDs, and physical changes in the workplace that can benefit their employees. Supervisors will also be provided a checklist they can use to identify and resolve ergonomic issues in their warehousing environment. This workshop is about 90 minutes in duration.

The course is offered free of charge for small businesses (250 employees or fewer) with warehouses through an OSHA Susan Harwood Training grant.  On-demand training sessions are available throughout the United States.
