Ergonomics Training

One of MYMIC Training Technologies most recent safety topics is Ergonomics. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, Ergonomics is the study of people's efficiency in their work environment. According to OSHA, Ergonomics is designing the job to fit the worker as opposed to the worker trying to fit the job. The main purpose of this training is to provide employees with required information about accident and illness record keeping and reporting for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This Ergonomics training is compelling, interactive, and explains to the user when an injury needs to be reported versus when an injury needs to be recorded. Understanding the difference between the two will help some companies' save time and avoid the potential fines that OSHA could give out if the process is not done correctly or in a timely manner. Some injuries covered in this training include Back Injuries, Shoulder and Elbow Related Injuries, Hand and Wrist Injuries, Eye Injuries as well as Eyestrain, and Neck Injuries. Each topic is uniquely covered and gives the user a chance to interact with safety training for each injury. Users are able to click on certain areas of the body with our interactive avatar to dive deeper into to each injury. Employees taking the training will be quizzed throughout the training to make sure they are caught up and understand the material, if the user does not pass the quiz, they will have the opportunity to redeem themselves. The user will see how some of the injuries can happen in the workplace and what could have been done to prevent them. Along with the users learning about the injuries, they will also get an understanding of what Ergonomics is according to OSHA, the benefits of Ergonomics, how to recognize an Ergonomic Hazard, and about the Regulatory Agencies that deal with Ergonomic related issues. In some cases, employees may have a work related injury that could have been easily prevented if they were aware. MYMIC Training Technologies' Ergonomics training has an extensive list of benefits, such as reducing cost. By reducing the risk factors, you can prevent the costly Musculoskeletal Disorders, which are injuries or pain in the body's joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendinitis, Rotator Cuff Injuries, Epicondylitis, and Trigger Finger are all examples of Musculoskeletal Disorders. This disorder can add up rapidly costing a large sum of money. Ergonomics also improves productivity in employees. By designing a job that allows for proper posture, fewer unnecessary motions, and easy to reach heights, the workstation becomes more efficient. Employees will also notice that their health and safety is being taken into consideration which will cause them to be more engaged in their work. Employees are some of the most important assets which make it vital to keep them as healthy as they can be.
