Workstation Ergonomics Training Program


Stanford Reference:

97-217


Abstract


Incorrect placement and use of equipment on employee desks can lead to injury. Ergonomics, the study of the relationship between people and their physical work environment, can be used to significantly mitigate workplace dangers. The Environmental Health and Safety Department at Stanford University have developed the Computer Workstation Ergonomics Training Course, an interactive multimedia training program that instructs computer users so that risk of ergonomic-related injuries is minimized. This innovative course provides personal instruction on how to improve workspace arrangements, and how to perform various ergonomic-related stretches and exercises. The program is available via a web deliverable version or on CD-ROM, both formats allow users to interactively identify and correct workstation ergonomic problems while at their own desk. Included in the course are: audio narration, testimonials from workers who have suffered ergonomics-related injuries, an interactive Q&A module to help learners assess their own workstation and print a record detailing its ergonomic concerns. Furthermore, the structure of the course facilitates a full range of customization to company or site-specific information.

Testimonial from an alpha product reviewer:

Wanted to share my enthusiasm for the truly innovative ergonomics CD program! Even in the early stages, it is much better than anything out there.
