    Designing Healthy Work Environments

This course explores ergonomic concerns in the office environment, and offers valuable insight on bridging the gap between design and function. Topics include an overview of common musculoskeletal problems facing today’s intensive computer users, key research developments in the areas of seating, input device design, display technology, lighting, and employee-level training. Participants will learn how ergonomic principles are applied to the design of computer workstations to reduce employee discomfort and risk of injury while lowering employer costs.

    Stand Up for Comfort

    In this session we will explore key research findings on the benefits of sit-to-stand workstations and offer guidance on how best to integrate postural variation into any work environment. Common questions such as ‘How frequently should one stand throughout the day and for how long?’, ‘How much adjustability is required?’, and ‘What are the health implications associated with prolonged standing?’ will be answered. Research on potential health outcomes, productivity gains and cost savings will also be shared.
