Course Aims / Summary:

This course is comprised of 2 modules:

Module 1: is undertaken independently online so you can work through this module at a suitable time and speed for you. Module 1 comprises of a series of short videos, additional reading and exercises, to complete a workbook that must be brought to Module 2. This will enable each delegate to have the necessary understanding to complete the face-to-face study day. Please allow around 10 - 15 hours to complete Module 1.

Module 2: is a one-day face-to-face study day. This will enable physiotherapists to develop the ability to conduct a competent ergonomics risk assessment in the workplace, predominantly concentrating on physical factors. A number of ergonomics risk assessment tools will be taught. The delegate will be able to undertake an ergonomics assessment of an individual, or a small group, in a setting where the issues are mainly physical.  The delegate will be able to prepare a suitable report of such assessments, with recommendations to manage identified risk.
