Course Aims / Summary

To 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.

  • Undertake a job analysis
  • Feel competent to identify physical ergonomic risk factors in a work setting
  • Utilise ergonomic risk assessment tools
  • Feel competent in making recommendations to reduce identified ergonomic risk
  • Plan an ergonomic assessment of an individual, or small group of people where the risk factors are mainly physical
