This program will show your crew techniques to prevent wear and tear on their backs while also helping them to understand why these methods will actually work. Among other things, this course describes how the back functions and why it is important to avoid bad postures, using faulty methods when lifting, or even being hunched over the computer for long periods of time.
This training program explores subjects that range from conducting JSAs and understanding why they are so important, to working at heights, preventing injuries from dropped objects, and saving wear and tear on your back by working smarter. Part of the IADC RigPass® Certification (with SafeGulf endorsement).
Beginning with a basic look at the building blocks of the human musculoskeletal system, viewers begin to understand why common workplace tasks can be difficult on our bodies and increase the risk of injury. This program illustrates the function and importance of components such as cartilage, ligaments, fascia, joints and nerves through detailed anatomical graphics and animation. Part of the Ergonomics Series.
This program details the workplace risk factors for soft tissue injuries, including lifting, pulling or pushing, high and low work, twisting, repetition and vibration. Through video and graphic support, the course demonstrates how a consistent focus on prevention and sound workplace practices can keep major or debilitating injuries from occurring. Part of the Ergonomics Series.
These interactive lessons demonstrate how injuries occur by tracing the impacts of work stresses on the lower back and spine, shoulders and other body parts. This helps workers to recognize why sound ergonomic methods are essential and how measures such as avoiding awkward postures, employing the proper lifting techniques and consistent stretching can promote safety and prevent injuries. Part of the Ergonomics Series.
This program focuses on basic ergonomic principles and provides a clear understanding of how proper lifting procedures and work postures can reduce the risk of injuries in the workplace. Sound ergonomics is a proven, cost-effective method to reduce injuries and stress on the body while improving efficiency and productivity. Part of the Ergonomics Series.
