What Is Office Ergonomics?
Ergonomics is a field of study that combines numerous disciplines. Among its chief concerns are the design of products or environments to increase our safety and comfort. In an office setting, ergonomics mainly refers to workstation design, but also to nurturing physiologically sound habits.
Office Ergonomics training aims to help employees be more comfortable throughout their work environment, reduce stress associated with repetitive tasks or straining positions, and take effective steps to prevent the onset of MSDs.
Who Needs Office Ergonomics?
Office Ergonomics is a course intended for individuals who spend most of their work time at a workstation. The training must be completed by any Canadian employee who works at a desk, as well as by potential candidates who are up for a desk job and are looking to enhance their resumes.
Some industries are more likely to require Office Ergonomics training than others. These include:
- Office Work
- Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare
- Hospitality and Tourism
- Education & Research
- Logistics (Shipping and Warehousing)
Who Is Responsible for Office Ergonomics Training?
Due to the serious health concerns associated with poor Office Ergonomics, the Canadian Labor Code stipulates that work environments and tools must abide by strict ergonomic standards. The OHS demands that employers implement regular Office Ergonomics Training for their workers.
At the same time, it is the obligation of the employee to see that their training is completed and that they use what they’ve learned on a day-to-day basis. Many candidates for office-related positions often undergo this training as a way to complete their CVs before an interview.
What Do You Need to Learn?
To successfully complete the Office Ergonomics course, workers will have to know important risk factors related to workstation design and posture. They must be aware of optimal ergonomics procedures and be able to identify any potential MSDs they expose themselves to if these best practices are not implemented on a routine basis.
How Long Is the Certificate Valid?
Workers who are limited to the confinements of an office desk should re-take this course every year. The market sees a constant in-flow of better products, tools, and work stations, but upgrading an entire office is a costly endeavor that does not happen as often as it should.
What Other Courses Should I Take?
Workers usually purchase Office Ergonomics alongside Workplace Harassment, Electrical Safety and Awareness, and Conflict Resolution.
