Thursday, February 28th, 2019 - 2:00pm EST: Incorporating Ergonomics into a Construction Safety Management Program
Presented by: Ann Marie Dale, Associate Professor, Washington University School of Medicine
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries among construction workers, yet ergonomic programs for MSD prevention are often “add-ons” to safety and rarely sustainable. Many tools, equipment, and work processes are available to reduce the physical demands of work, provided contractors plan to use them in jobs. Incorporating ergonomics into safety management system gives a systematic approach to integrating ergonomic principles and practices into work processes and the safety culture of a company. Join us for this 45 minute webinar to learn about how to develop a model program for integrating ergonomics into an safety management program to help contractors address ergonomic hazards and reduce workers risk for musculoskeletal disorders.
