Event Description

Mitigate Repetitive Strain Injuries by Implementing an Ergonomics Program in Your Organization

Workers across industries and occupations are exposed to risk factors at work that include lifting heavy items, bending, reaching overhead, pushing and pulling heavy loads, working in awkward body postures and performing the same or similar tasks repetitively, according to OSHA. If your workers are exposed to these known risk factors, their risk of injury is much higher. Companies looking to improve their safety culture already know that a robust ergonomics program is essential to helping employees avoid work-related stress injuries. Does your company know the best ways to ensure safety success and avoid costly lawsuits and complaints filed with OSHA?

Expert speaker Natalia Olive will provide best strategies to help you begin that journey. Planned as an introductory review of how to set up your ergonomics program, this session will focus on the problem statement, the strategic approach to implementing the program, and the scope of tools you can use to control ergonomic hazards in your workplace. Natalia will bring her over 17 years of international experience in safety and environmental engineering to bear in teaching you about the common mechanisms by which people develop repetitive strain injuries (RSI) and will review ways to mitigate these hazards. With a strong focus on people and program management combined with a wide range of technical components, her presentation will help you understand this important aspect of safety education, and help you build excellence in your company’s safety culture. Finally, the session will talk about the experts you can consider bringing into your team to help set up and maintain a robust ergonomics program.
