Assessing the risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) can be overwhelming. There are a variety of tools available. While some are quick and easy to use and others require more time and training, not all tools are appropriate for every situation.

This webinar will introduce attendees to the latest version of the AIHA Ergonomic Toolkit and review important updates. We will also discuss a strategy for selecting the correct tool(s) from the many available and recommend a plan for the assessment.

Learning Objectives
After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the Revised Ergonomic Toolkit and the information contained in it.
  • Outline a strategy for choosing an appropriate ergonomic assessment tool.
  • Identify WMSD risk factors and the tools best suited to analyze them.
  • Analyze several scenarios and discuss the best approach for assessment.
