Learning Outcomes

Vision and lighting are important components of an ergonomists evaluation of work station ergonomic risk. We have enhanced our standard office ergonomic course to include a vision component for ergonomic professionals who want to know more about how vision is evaluated, risk is determined, and solutions are implemented. This course is our standard office ergonomic course with an extra hour of content specifically related to how vision effects ergonomics.

Following the completion of this one-day online streaming training program, you will be able to analyze and identify common office and vision ergonomic risk factors and ultimately reduce these factors through the implementation of appropriate controls. The course will demonstrate and teach evaluation techniques and discuss how to implement a company wide office ergonomics program, how to evaluate ergonomic risk and vision related risk for the general ergonomic professional.

This course will provide detailed and hands-on instructions of commonly used office and vision ergonomic screening and assessment tools designed to identify high risk activities, rank multiple jobs for the need for ergonomic revisions, and provide direction for selection of office ergonomic solutions.
