OHCOW – The impact of COVID-19 on Workplace Ergonomics

Speakers: Ergonomists – Melissa Statham and Dwayne Fuchs

We are now at the point where many businesses and organizations are considering (or have begun) returning to the workplace and regular operations. However, it is definitely not the same world. Many changes have to be made in how we interact with each other, navigate space, and conduct business. As we make those changes to procedures, tools, workstations, and the environment, individuals will be impacted, sometimes negatively. It is good to remind ourselves of important Ergonomic concepts and reflect on how they might apply to the “new normal” in order to avoid aches, pain, stress, injury, and especially time loss.
