SESSION TOPICS

  1. Hazard Identification
    Title: Dig Deeper into Hazard Identification: Greater Detail for Greater Effectiveness
    Description:
    Hazard identification; sounds simple right? In our experience, many people can rhyme off the main MSD hazards such as force, awkward posture, and repetition but few do an effective job of looking close enough to gather useful information for the next steps of risk evaluation and control recommendation. This session will walk you through how to take basic hazard identification to the next level, so you get the information you need to make productive, impactful change.
  2. Controls
    Title: Measuring the Impact of Potential Controls and your ROI
    Description:
    Everyone has issues with the job they do, and many have suggestions for how to improve it, but which solutions are the best? How do you evaluate that? No one wants to waste valuable time and money on solutions that are going to have little impact or pose greater risk. Let’s discuss several ways you can evaluate your potential solutions to determine the impact on injury risk and, consequently, the return you can expect on your investment.
  3. PDA
    Title: Working Reactively? Ergonomic Tools to Have in Your Toolbox.
    Description:
    Feel like you’re putting out fires (i.e. dealing with issues or injuries) and never getting proactive with your ergonomic program? You aren’t alone. If you are feeling like you’re on a hamster wheel, then join us to learn more about some tools you should have in your toolbox to make a reactive approach to ergonomics the most efficient it can be (and maybe even learn about a small step or two you can take to start moving towards being proactive!).
  4. Front-Line Staff Training
    Title: Ergonomics is Not a Secret! Educate your Front-Line Staff to Improve Your Ergonomic Program
    Description:
    Front line employees are usually the ones performing the most physical jobs and are therefore exposed to the greatest ergonomic risk. BUT, they also have the most control over how they work. In this session we will share some client success stories, showcasing how they were able to really engage their front line staff and get them thinking about the role they play in ergonomic injury prevention.
