Ergonomics - Steps to Reduce Workplace Related Injuries Certificate Course

Every year, millions of people around the world are injured at work. Occasionally, these injuries are fatal. Not only do workplace accidents result in pain and suffering for the casualty, but they also come at a cost to the organisation in terms of profit, productivity and reputation. In this course, you will learn how and why taking ergonomic factors into account when designing a job or workplace lowers the chances of an accident. You will discover how successful businesses manage the most common workplace risks and why it is important to consider the work culture as a whole when making changes designed to improve worker safety and wellbeing.

You Will Learn:-

  • What is meant by the term “ergonomics” and why it is necessary to consider the nature of the job, worker characteristics and organisational factors when making decisions that could impact upon worker health and safety.
  • What the term “procedure” means, how procedures are carried out, what to bear in mind when designing a procedure, how and why procedural errors occur and the link between procedures and competence.
  • How to ensure that workers undertake manual handling tasks in a safe and efficient manner and how to limit the number of manual handling tasks carried out at work.
  • Why fatigue is a risk factor in the workplace and how to ensure the welfare of shift workers.
  • Why it is important to promote a culture of safety at work, why making changes can pose difficulties and how to overcome resistance to change.

Benefits Of Taking This Course:-

  • You will be in a position to identify health and safety risks in the workplace, to identify job design problems and to alert your supervisor or manager to issues that require attention.
  • If you work in an HR role, or have been given special responsibility for health and safety at work, you will benefit from this introduction to the interaction between ergonomic factors and accident prevention.
  • If you are a manager, this course will help you to educate your team with regards to health and safety issues, thus promoting a safe working environment.
  • If you are in a senior management position, this course will give you the confidence and knowledge you need to inspire the active development of a positive safety culture.
  • If you are interested in a career in ergonomics or health and safety, this course will provide you with an overview of the key issues confronting organisations today.

Really helpful course, it covers all the main aspects to become a successful PA. I was looking for an admin course where I can improve a new side of my professional career and this course had everything I needed. It gives you everything from basic computer knowledge to tips for the day to day basics like answering the phone or how to create a memo or book your boss’ travel arrangements. It offers a clear structure with all the main subjects divide in short modules, easy to study that way, and it gives you examples in real life as well as practice exercises that help you to understand everything. With support during all the course and access during a whole year, you cannot ask for more value for money! Totally recommended!

Alicia Prenda

I really enjoyed this course. Was a lot of reading and had to stop and try to take it in.

There were 21 modules, and most of them took 45 minutes to complete, so you need to be in a position, where you actually have the time to do all the tasks that are required. The tasks are mainly to do things by yourself to practise what you have just read, but doing it will help you out so much.

Will be looking for another course, as I enjoyed this so much, definitely worth the price as the certificate is worth more on your cv.

An excellent course with up to date thinking based on good research about canine behaviours. I particularly liked the style of teaching. Suitable for all levels and had just the right touch.

I found it stimulating, encouraging and above all, not patronising. It will be very helpful to me on my road as an animal Reiki therapist working with a wide variety of breeds in a rescue centre. I am now much more aware of calming signals and subtle signals that the dog is ready to accept contact.

I would recommend it to anyone wanting to enhance their understanding and communication with dogs.

Lucy Lofting

I’ve been searching for courses based around animals for a long time. Finally found a provider that has a lot of courses in this area. I’m really enjoying this course so far, and can’t wait to do the next one.

The course is very easy to follow, with highlighted text so that you can remember the important parts of each module and the fact you can learn at your own speed and access the course for life is great. I am a very busy working mum, and I can now fit my learning around my other commitments in my life.

Bring on future learning!

Sarah Robinson

A brilliant course which was very informative and I really enjoyed it. Very difficult test at the end so you do really need to read through every module to do the test and pass it.

I will be recommending it to all my friends for sure. The bonus is I have access to this information forever. So I can revisit it anytime I like, how great is that??? I think its amazing personally.

Jay Harper

I am 3/4 the way through my Legal Secretary Diploma Course, I have studied full time and it has taken me about a week (few hours per day) Very informative course which makes you memorise each module well, with worksheets at the end of each module. Gave a brilliant knowledge base into the different areas of Law and the secretaries roles within them. I have never done an online course before as thought they were not very credible, but this they are good providing you are willing to put the work in, all the information is provided for you , you just need to use it. Thoroughly recommend to anyone who has some spare time and wants to expand their legal knowledge - this course is not just for legal secretaries!!
