With many positions in workplaces involving working at a computer workstation for long periods of time, it is important that the workplace is optimised for the employee. There are a number of pieces of equipment at a computer workstation that may need to be adjusted to the specific person. Doing this will reduce the risk of injury or pain, which will improve productivity and reduce absenteeism.

This training course will provide delegates with the knowledge and know how to set up their own computer workstation to be ergonomically correct to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury.

  • Principles of Ergonomics and Ergonomic Risk Factors
  • Hazard Identification Process
  • Setting up your workstation
  • Risk reduction methods (incl. Flexibility exercises)
  • Overview of Legislation

On completion of the course delegates will:

  • Understand the risk factors associated with using computer workstations
  • Appreciate the risk factors associated with poor posture
  • Be able to set up their own workstation applying the principles of good ergonomics

An LCE Certificate of completion will be awarded to each participant on successful completion of the course.
