When parts of our bodies are subjected to awkward positions, we risk the development of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Using proper work practice controls in both office and industrial settings can prevent these types of injuries. This program discusses how workers can use these controls to reduce, control or eliminate ergonomic risk factors. Topics include: • Engineering & Administrative Controls • Work Practice Controls for Various Body Parts • How to Lift & Carry Loads Properly • How & Why to Report Symptoms of MSDs
