Training individuals to recognize and assess ergonomic hazards will result in a greater opportunity to prevent injuries and costs related to ergonomics. This program will provide participants with an advanced awareness on Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs), and assist them in recognizing and reducing ergonomic hazards.
