Ergonomics Solutions to the Potential Pitfalls of Hybrid Offices

As we eagerly return to work in the office, many organizations are considering hybrid working models.

While temporary workstations make sense for both financial and flexibility reasons, Ergonomists fear that the excitement to reimagine the office environment, may result in companies overlooking many ergonomics and human factors considerations. In doing so, they will place employees at risk for discomfort, injury, and reduced productivity.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Working in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other healthcare environments can place high physical demands on workers and often requires manual handling, forceful exertions, and awkward postures, typically over the course of a 12-hour shift. The presence and combination of these musculoskeletal disorder hazards contributes to the risk of injury.

There are several ergonomic initiatives that healthcare organizations can consider to reduce employee injury risk. This live webinar will outline some successful ergonomics and injury prevention strategies that can impact the overall wellbeing of healthcare workers, including:

• The importance of outlining policies and processes for handling ergonomic concerns
• Identification of ergonomic hazards in all jobs, as part of proactive screening
• Education on proper work set up and techniques for all types of jobs
• The importance of safe patient handling programs – how ergonomics plays a critical role
• Tackling easier to fix ergonomic issues, such as proper computer set up, to reduce overall injury risk

After the webinar and upon request, ERGO Inc. will provide Ergonomics Toolkit Cards to participants to help with Ergonomics in your workplace.
