Overview:

Workplaces have transitioned to working remotely as part of the COVID-19 response in order to adhere to public health guidelines but were not necessarily prepared to address all elements of remote work.

In particular, the lack of ergonomic preparedness led to staff being sent home with only a laptop, no other equipment, to achieve proper ergonomic set-up and no strategy on how to get staff equipment should they experience discomforts.

When you combine the lack of equipment with a lack of training or education on how to set-up their home workstation to achieve ergonomic principles this created a recipe for musculoskeletal injuries.

This webinar will review lessons learned from COVID-19 with respect to remote work, and emergency preparedness as it relates to ergonomics in a home office and reviews strategies for developing a more comprehensive program to better address ergonomics for staff working at home.

Why should you Attend: Workplaces have transitioned to working remotely as part of the COVID-19 response in order to adhere to public health guidelines but were not necessarily prepared to address the complexities of remote work.

Staff were sent home to begin remote work with no policy or procedure in place on expectations related to performing work remotely and no plan for addressing ergonomics for staff working from a home office.

This contributes to an increase in musculoskeletal injuries in workplaces.
