WorkWell announces Ergonomics On-Demand!, a new on-demand ergonomics learning program focused on boosting workplace safety in office and manufacturing work environments.
Developed by ergonomics expert Mark Anderson, Ergonomics On-Demand! provides modular, self-paced training to help healthcare professionals integrate practical ergonomics applications into their practices.
Implementing ergonomic processes in the workplace is critical to reducing musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries and helps improve worker performance and productivity. WorkWell’s Ergonomics On-Demand! program gives physical and occupational therapists the tools they need to perform ergonomic analysis and generate reasonable and feasible ergonomic recommendations for intervention to minimize injury risks in both manufacturing and office environments.
“Today’s flexible work environment requires equally flexible learning options. With WorkWell’s Ergonomics On-Demand!, healthcare professionals can complete training at their own pace and convenience, right from their computer. Workplace ergonomics are an important component of WorkWell’s Managed Onsite PT program which helps organizations provide a safe working environment by taking proactive measures to identify injury risks and treat work-related injuries.”
— Kristen Cederlind, Director of Clinical Services
