Labor & Industry Ergonomics

Online Training Certification Course

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This online certification course presents an overview of industry and labor ergonomics. It covers the basic concepts of ergonomics and identifies ways to reduce workplace accidents and injuries. Topics include applicable regulations, safety standards, best practices, and the benefits of ergonomic solutions for workplace safety.

Overexertion and repetitive motion injuries are the most common (and costly) workplace injuries. Ergonomics training is based on the science of body posture and proper tool use to ensure a safe, healthy, and productive workplace environment.

This course is for:
This labor and industry ergonomics training is designed for anyone whose work puts them in awkward positions and/or requires forceful exertion, repetitive motions, or static posture. Since the potential of ergonomic hazards exist in virtually every work environment, this online training course is recommended for all labor or industry workers. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for labor and industrial ergonomics training.

Case Study: At a Duracell battery manufacturing plant in Georgia, work-related musculoskeletal disorders accounted for 35 percent of the facility's total recordable injuries and illnesses over a four-year period. In response, the company developed an ergonomics committee with the goal of identifying the causes of these injuries and developing methods to reduce injuries. The committee reviewed OSHA injury logs, and then developed, prioritized, and implemented recommendations for improvements. These improvements included automated unloading and loading stations, redesigned work stations, adjustment of work height, rotation of jobs, and use of anti-fatigue floor mats and ergonomically designed chairs. They also trained their occupational health nurse on medical case management procedures, implemented an Ergonomic Task Force, and provided continued training for all employees. These efforts resulted in a 90 percent reduction in work-related musculoskeletal disorder incident rates and an 81 percent reduction in total accidents.

Governing Regulations

OSHA Ergonomics: Enforcement states: OSHA has developed industry specific guidelines to provide specific and helpful guidance for abatement to assist employees and employers in minimizing injuries. Even if there are no guidelines specific to your industry, as an employer you still have an obligation under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) to keep your workplace free from recognized serious hazards, including ergonomic hazards. OSHA will cite for ergonomic hazards under the General Duty Clause or issue ergonomic hazard letters where appropriate as part of its overall enforcement program.

It will take a MINIMUM of 2 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazards such as musculoskeletal disorders and other workplace injuries.

Under the OSH Act's General Duty Clause, employers must keep their workplaces free from recognized serious hazards, including ergonomic hazards. To ensure compliance with OSHA's ergonomics hazards enforcement program, safety training must be conducted periodically and as-needed to ensure the work environment is free from recognized hazards. Refresher training should also occur whenever changes to the worksite, equipment, or tasks render previous training obsolete. This ergonomics certification online course meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
