Industrial ergonomics encompasses any job task performed outside of the office/computer workstation environment. These include, but are not limited to: laboratory work (pipetting, microscope, etc.), custodial work, manual materials handling (lifting, pushing, pulling), animal care, mail handling, food service and cooking, etc. Attend this session to gain insight on how to apply ergonomics to your specific setting.
Goals and Target Audience:
