HSA is pleased to have the BC Federation of Labour Occupational Health and Safety Centre facilitate this online course.

In this course, OHS Stewards and JOSH Reps will learn how to support members in their workplaces to address their ergonomic concerns. Ergonomic issues may arise for members in the workplace or when working from home. In both cases, the employer has responsibility to ensure their workplace is safe.

In this course participants will learn:

• Common health effects of MSI injuries,
• How to comply with existing ergonomics legislation,
• How to identify ergonomic hazards, risk assessment techniques and generate solutions to deal with hazards,
• Strategies to assist in implementing an effective prevention program, and
• Have an opportunity to put theory into practice using the “Fix That Job” exercise.
