Understanding risk factors related to movement patterns and ergonomics in the workplace can help us take action against musculoskeletal disorders, one of the most common occupational injuries. Research has shown that people who are physically fit and use proper body mechanics are more resistant to back injuries and pain, and recover quicker when they do have injuries. This presentation provides tips for safety and recommendations for safe lifting and ergonomics for a healthy spine and include an interactive mini stretch break program. (45 min.)
All workshops will take place in Paresky Auditorium. An Amazon gift card will be given to one random attendee at each workshop. If you attend four workshops, you will also be entered into a drawing for a Fitbit Charge.
