As you know, many of us spend a significant portion of our day sitting at a desk, staring at a computer screen. Unfortunately, poor ergonomics can lead to a range of health problems, from eye strain and headaches to back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other musculoskeletal disorders.
Through this course, we will explore the principles of ergonomics and how they can be applied to your workspace. We will cover topics such as proper posture, desk and chair setup, lighting, and computer placement, as well as strategies for taking breaks and staying active throughout the workday.
By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of the importance of ergonomics in the workplace, and you will have the tools and knowledge you need to create a safe and comfortable workstation that promotes productivity and overall well-being.
The course comprises a short video (27 mins) and a course quiz (5-10 mins). You'll need a 70% passmark to receive your course certificate.
