Topic:

The evolution of an eLearning for Office Ergonomics

Over the past few years, IWH has collaborated with a number of parties to create an evidence-based, standard-compliant eLearning on Office Ergonomics. This presentation will provide attendees with a brief history of the program’s development, it’s effectiveness in two separate field trials, and how it can be currently accessed to support your needs as a practicing ergonomist. The effectiveness of alternative training methods will also  be discussed.
