This training focuses on Ergonomics and Manual Handling, designed to provide knowledge and prevention strategies for ergonomic effects resulting from daily work activities. Ergonomics, as a science, involves applying information about human physical and psychological characteristics to optimize the design of work environments. It is crucial for employees exposed to ergonomic and manual handling risks to undergo training to minimize potential ergonomic effects.
Having the knowledge and skills to handle various tasks, such as operating machinery, using computers, lifting objects, setting up workstations, and prolonged standing, is essential for maximizing performance and efficiency while minimizing the impact of ergonomic factors on individuals. By equipping participants with proper ergonomic management techniques and emphasizing safe manual handling practices, this training package aims to enhance workplace safety, reduce ergonomic-related issues, and promote overall productivity and well-being.
