Basic ergonomic assessments are critical to a healthy, productive work environment. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 34 percent of all lost-workday injuries and illnesses are work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Are you currently evaluating your employees’ ergonomics?
TargetSolutions understands ergonomic-related claims comprise a significant portion of workplace injuries. With TargetSolutions’ powerful computer-based training system, platform managers can create electronic documents
that track how many hours per day an employee sits at their desk and uses their computer. They can report employees’ satisfaction with work-surface height, lighting and noise. They can deliver organizational ergonomics policies and generate comprehensive reports to evaluate data and analyze risks to determine if additional training is necessary.
TargetSolutions’ course catalog features more than 60 hours of valuable OSHA and online safety training courses
, including a General Ergonomics course that is designed to help employees examine the way they interact with their work environment. Information provided in the online safety training course can help identify problems with workstations; as well as recognize the early warning signs of work-related musculoskeletal disorders before they become serious.
