Ergonomics Training

Offices vary from multi-storeyed, air conditioned buildings to small areas that are part of ware-houses, factories, hospitals and homes. While hazards in the office may not always be as obvious as those in factories, office workers may also face a range of health and safety issues, including poor job design, prolonged repetitive work, moving heavy loads, inadequate lighting and cramped or unsafe work areas.

This Training is designed to help employers and employees take a fresh look at their workplace.

It aims to:

  • aise awareness of health and safety issues in the office
  • help identify existing and potential health and safety problems
  • encourage consultation on health and safety issues
  • help employers meet their legal responsibilities in relation to health and safety
  • offer solutions and advice
