REGISTER NOW FOR FREE

Computers have changed the nature of work. With a pencil, we could get writing cramps. Today, we talk about mouse arm (RSI). Join ergonomics expert Jane Ahlin in exploring the developments leading up to the Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) that exist today. You’ll hear about research highlighting the value of a preventive approach — it’s about productivity and costs, but also the pain for the individual. Improper equipment and unsuitable working methods increase the risk of incapacity. How do employers create better conditions? This presentation provides examples of a working method that motivates both the employer and the employee to take the responsibility to make large and lasting improvements.


Attend and earn a Certificate of Completion you can use to apply for CEUs with BCSP directly or CoC points with BCPE directly.
