Description:MARCOM's "Laboratory Ergonomics"
Video Training Program discusses the need to set up work areas correctly,
as well as how to minimize the strain of using laboratory equipment, tools
and instruments. Many of the activities performed in a laboratory can
exert stress and strain on muscles and joints... ultimately causing significant
injuries. To work safely and maintain good ergonomic health, employees
need to know how to avoid movements and work patterns that can be harmful.
Areas covered in the program include parts of the body most
susceptible to ergonomic problems, arranging work areas to minimize stress
and strain, working from "neutral" positions, most and least
stressful types of body movements, proper lifting techniques, effective
stretching exercises, and more. The Video Program comes with a comprehensive
Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee
Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log. This Video Training Program
is one of 12 in the Elements of Safety Laboratory Safety Training
