ACPOHE Webinars

 

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

CENTRE OF RESEARCH EXPERTISE FOR THE PREVENTION OF MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS (CRE-MSD)

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.
