About the Online Ergonomics Training Class
You have likely found this course because of a requirement by an employer to complete a Workplace Ergonomics Class. This online ergonomics course has been informed by research, guidelines, and requirements published by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH).
Under the OSH Act’s General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1), employers must keep their workplaces free from recognized serious hazards, including ergonomic hazards. Therefore, many employers make certain that workers receive regular training that covers essential elements of ergonomic safety. In this course, students will learn the importance of ergonomics in the workplace and how to avoid ergonomic injuries.
The Ergonomics Training Class is offered with a minimum time requirement of one (1) hour. A timer is provided to help you keep track of time spent within the course. You may start and stop the Ergonomics Training Class as often as you'd like and your progress will be saved each time.
