Overview

Every week, laboratory workers perform hundreds of tasks, often at different workstations with different requirements. Each task calls for a different set of movements, creating a vast range of demands on the body. These demands may cause stress and strain and prevent you from working properly. Use this training to understand ergonomics and the actions workers need to take in order to prevent unhealthy stress on the body and potentially debilitating injuries.

Ergonomics involves fitting your equipment to suit the needs of your body, to reduce stress and strain. Even seemingly mundane things like how you are seated or how far away you hold printed materials as you read them may dramatically affect the way you work. With this On Demand training lesson, you learn how to recognize potentially harmful tasks, as well as how to adjust your actions in order to prevent them. The video demonstrates proper lifting techniques, as well as the best body positions that reduce exertion.

Working in a laboratory presents some obvious safety hazards, but you must recognize the other ways you put your health at risk. Eye strain may decrease your ability to focus on objects in front of you, or a muscle pull in your back may prevent you from lifting materials. With this safety training video on laboratory ergonomics you will learn to identify, understand, and avoid these potentially harmful incidents. Avoid the strains of laboratory work with this online video training.
