Jakarta | September 3, 2009 | Rp. 800.000,-
There are two kinds of hazards in the office; they are Ergonomics hazard and Safety hazard. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD) are the most commonly occurring hazards in modern offices. These injuries result from poorly designed workstations, and inadequate job design.
Ergonomics deals with the compatibility between workers and their work. Poor ergonomic conditions exist when the “work” is incompatible with the workers’ bodies and their ability to continue working. Such conditions may cause discomfort, fatigue and pain and, subsequently, injury. When the work area is too cold or too hot, poorly lit, noisy, poorly ventilated, or contains unpleasant odours it results in annoyance, stress, fatigue, eye strain, headache and other conditions. Injuries and illnesses related to poor ergonomic conditions can be prevented by making the workplace and the work organization fit the physical and mental ability of each individual worker.
The specific objectives of this course were to enable you to:
- Develop an understanding of the basic elements of office ergonomics;
- Identify tasks that can potentially cause work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD) and other injuries to the muscles and joints;
- Develop an ergonomics program and set goals for your workplace; and
- Focus on problem solving through employee and management involvement.
