Workplace Ergonomics

ID : 6165   
« back to classes page
In our increasingly screen-centered world most of us are faced with sedentary work environments. The average person spends 8 to14 hours a day sitting, yet we are unsure how to combat the detrimental effects of bad positions at work. The good news is that simple and creative solutions can reduce the amount of strain inflicted while perched in poor positions.

This one-day interactive workshop will involve alternating instruction with student activities. Students will learn and practice empowering strategies specifically for the workplace to prevent the common aches and pains caused by prolonged sitting, or as a result of poor body mechanics at work. It will be a kinesthetic learning environment where students will move and practice how to engrain the principles into daily living and working. Students will learn how to prevent hip, low back, neck, shoulder, and wrist pain derived from poor posture at work, and learn core-bracing and movement patterns to avoid repetitive stress injuries.

This knowledge will have an instant effect on daily life and movement, as students learn how to decrease pain and increase productivity!
