Expert Session

It’s one thing to talk about overexertion and repetition. It's another to be able to identify manual material handling and hand-intensive tasks that pose the greatest musculoskeletal injury (MSI) risk within a specific element of any task.

In this workshop, gain a basic understanding of physical ergonomics and MSI prevention, and then explore the essentials of task analysis—the first step in a physical demands analysis for any job.

Take away an understanding of why it is important to break a job or task into smaller sub-tasks/ elements when identifying and assessing MSI risk as part of a physical demands analysis.
