Ergonomic Training

Benefits of having a trained ergonomics coach on your team

Do you want to get ahead of the injury curve and keep small aches from becoming painful injuries?
Train impactful in-house Ergo Coaches to make real workplace improvements and show employees you care about their health and well-being. Musculoskeletal fatigue does not have to become an expensive injury. When dealt with early, most muscle fatigue and discomfort can be relieved with simple workstation adjustments and quick fixes.  We will train your in-house people to be able to identify ergonomic hazards and help others to optimize the fit of their desk and chair for comfort.

This hands-on training is available in-person or virtually.
