Learning Outcomes

Our Industrial Ergonomic Course is designed for professionals who are interested in implementing or expanding their knowledge in on-site injury prevention and total body (lower back and upper extremity) and industrial ergonomics. A significant portion of this class is hands-on testing using the NIOSH, OSHA, WISHA, RULA, REBA, ACGIH-TLVs, and other evaluation tools. The training course discusses evidence-based evaluations and consulting protocols based on current OSHA standards, NIOSH guidelines, and published clinical literature. Learning outcomes include:

  • Select and describe current ergonomic evaluation tools and protocols
  • Differentiate risk factors associated with upper extremity and low back ergonomic injuries
  • Choose and apply internationally recognized upper extremity and low back ergonomic tools
  • Prepare, identify, and select engineering, administrative, and work practice controls/ergonomic solutions
  • Demonstrate the ability to use upper extremity and low back ergonomic assessment tools in multiple industrial and manufacturing environments
  • Apply to become a Certified Industrial Ergonomic Evaluator by obtaining a CIEE Certification

I normally struggle doing continuing education via On Demand formats. However, the information and presentation method with OccuPro was engaging and very helpful. Nice job, Jim!

Mile Bluff Medical Center

Jim was down to earth, personable, and very professional. He was able to relax the class and got everyone to participate.

Woodraw Hepler

I participated in the Industrial Ergonomics Evaluator Course. Jim was great! He made ergonomics come alive with video. We applied our new skills right away, in the classroom. It was one of the best courses I have taken.

Charlene Stafford, PT
Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers

Jim was very informative and was able to answer all the questions asked. He also gave personal examples and research based evidence which I really enjoyed.

Courtney Pincin, OTR/L
Carlisle Regional Medical Center

The course was great. I loved the material and Jim presented in such an easy-to-follow, easy-to-learn platform. Very conducive to learning and applying to your practice.

Lauren Larkey, PT, MTC, CEAS I

This course exceeded my expectations. I was unaware of all the science and the processes. Good to learn there is better tools than me using "because I said so."

David Hill

Working full time makes finding time difficult. Being able to complete the course in PJs is wonderful. I LOVE the On Demand course format!

Jason Geml

Jim Mecham was the course instructor for the On Demand course. He is a very good speaker, very relaxed ,and very knowledgeable. He made a 7-hour video very tolerable.

David Velasco

The On Demand course was extremely informative and I'm so glad I took it this way because I clicked the back button about 100 times so I could take accurate notes. I am so pleased with the course, the content, and materials. This was great and I'm very thankful.

Amanda DiGiovanni, OTD, OTR/L, MLD/CDT, CAPS
SOHO

I expected this course to be a dry, textbook, distance learning experience, however, with the actual video feed of the course, I was able to visually learn like I was there! Many of my questions were fulfilled by the video portions.

Stephanie May

I learned a lot in this course and it was presented well and easy to understand.
