Millions of people suffer work-related injuries each year all throughout the world. These wounds can occasionally be lethal. Workplace accidents not only cause the injured party pain and suffering, but they also cost the organisation money, productivity, and goodwill.

This course will teach you how and why creating a job or workplace with ergonomics in mind reduces the likelihood of accidents. You’ll learn how successful companies handle the most typical workplace risks and why it’s crucial to take the work environment as a whole into account when making changes to enhance employee safety and wellness.

  • What the term "ergonomics" refers to and why it's important to take the nature of the job, worker traits, and organisational aspects into account when making decisions that could affect employee health and safety.
  • What is meant by the term "procedure," how processes are carried out, considerations to make while creating a procedure, the causes and effects of procedural errors, and the relationship between competence and procedures.
  • How to ensure that manual handling jobs are carried out by employees in a safe and effective manner, as well as how to reduce the volume of manual handling tasks performed at work.
  • How to protect the welfare of shift employees and why weariness is a danger factor in the workplace.
  • Why it's crucial to encourage a safety-conscious workplace culture, why change can be challenging, and how to deal with change resistance.

  • You'll be able to see health and safety hazards at work, spot difficulties with the way jobs are designed, and let your manager or supervisor know about concerns that need to be addressed.
  • This overview of the relationship between ergonomic variables and accident prevention will be helpful if you work in HR or have been given special responsibility for health and safety at work.
  • If you are a manager, this course will help you to educate your team with regards to health and safety issues, thus promoting a safe working environment.
  • This course will provide you an overview of the major problems that organisations are currently dealing with if you are interested in a career in ergonomics or health and safety.
