Working Together Webinar Series
The aim of these sessions is to bring our member organisations together to share information, research and practice on topics of work and health. Each session will be one hour and include short presentations, followed by a discussion.
We encourage all member organisations to join and actively participate.
Vehicle Ergonomics online
This 2–3 hour independent online learning course includes provision of a new electronic Vehicle Assessment Form to assist you when undertaking these assessments. This is a highly practical course with plenty of top tips on how best undertake these assessments based on a systems approach to ergonomics.
It includes case-studies, videos and links to further resources. We recommended that you have some prior knowledge of ergonomics prior to undertaking this course, such as attendance at ACPOHE's Introduction to Applied Ergonomics Course, or similar training.
The course is fully online so you can undertake it whenever you like. For more details and to book a place, please see: https://acpohe.csp.org.uk/event/new-vehicle-ergonomics-online-course
Case Study Contest on Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) Prevention/Ergonomics Interventions
In partnership with ACE and CCCPE, CRE-MSD is pleased to announce the launch of the Case Study Contest on Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) Prevention/Ergonomics Interventions. Enter for a chance to win prizes and other benefits!
Developing effective solutions can be a difficult task. With workers’ Health & Safety in mind, let’s get together and share successful interventions with each other. Whether you’re part of a company, a professional in the field, or a student completing a placement, we’re looking for case studies to showcase on the MSD Prevention Guideline for Ontario website. Let’s work together to create a robust case study database to help companies work towards preventing MSD in the workplace.
Webinar: Identifying Critical Physical Demanding Tasks of Personal Support Workers and the Implications for Ergonomic Interventions
June 22, 2022 | 12:00 to 1:00 PM EDT
The job duties of Personal Support Workers (PSWs) continues to expand. As a result, it is critical to obtain knowledge of the tasks that are the most demanding and potentially pose the largest injury risks. This information can help direct ergonomic interventions to mitigate injury risk, in particular musculoskeletal disorders. This webinar will present findings from a survey of over 400 PSWs, consisting of the most physically demanding and frequently completed PSW work tasks, along with descriptions of contextual factors that influence the intensity of the physical demand required for specific tasks.

IEA Webinar: Why You Should Consider Sex/Gender in Your MSD Prevention Efforts
June 16, 2022 | 15:00 UTC
This free webinar hosted by the International Ergonomics Association (IEA) will:
demonstrate why it is important to consider sex/gender in our musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) prevention efforts
summarize evidence highlighting how MSD prevention efforts can fail when sex/gender is not considered, or be strengthened when sex/gender is considered
discuss and debate how to better integrate sex/gender into MSD prevention research and practice
