Webinar OverviewPresented in English

Webinar Description:

When it comes to business applications, the focus should be on optimizing efficiency and effectiveness. The field of ergonomics is not an island; like a lot of business processes, it must evolve to take advantage of relevant available technology or risk being left behind as a series of dinosaur checklists, paper-based assessment tools, handwritten measurements and instructor led trainings. 

This presentation will focus on how technology can be used to make your ergonomics process better. Specifically, we will share examples of how a few key tools, methods and approaches can accelerate MSD risk reduction efforts, optimize resources and achieve global engagement.

Attendees of This Webinar Will Learn:

  • Ways to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of how ergonomics is managed through the use of technology
  • New methods of delivering ergonomics training: Instructor-led vs. e-Learning
  • Methods for planning, monitoring, and tracking progress
