You will learn to identify solutions for common risk factors associated with static postures; hand tool use; material handling; and storage and climate control in the manufacturing environment. This course also discusses the advantages, potential disadvantages and approximate costs of each solution. We will evaluate engineering solutions to risk factors identified with the NIOSH lifting, RULA, REBA evaluation tools.

Course Objectives

  • Identify work station components that can affect employee comfort and safety
  • Determine ideal work height and posture for a given task
  • Identify engineering solutions to decrease leg and back fatigue
