AALAS Webinar: Establishing and Maintaining an Effective Ergonomics Program

Vivarium jobs are typically physically demanding and highly repetitive, leading to discomfort and work-related injuries. Many vivariums seek ways to reduce these hazards but often find their efforts unsuccessful. This webinar is designed to give participants the basic knowledge needed to begin to implement an effective and sustainable ergonomic improvement program. Using examples of common vivarium job tasks, the webinar will review the risk factors for musculoskeletal injury in vivarium workers and the steps to launch a successful program. Making changes in a fast-paced vivarium environment is often difficult especially when staff have done the job the same way for a long time. This webinar will introduce a participatory ergonomic approach to engage the staff in overcoming this challenge.
