The Health and Safety Authority in conjunction with the Irish Human Factors and Ergonomics Society invite you to attend this webinar on practical ergonomics risk assessment tools tailored for those working in the health sector. 

Why attend? 

Ergonomics aims to design tasks so that people can perform their work within their capabilities, protecting their musculoskeletal health while enabling them to work more efficiently.

Attendees will gain an insight to practical risk assessment tools to quantify ergonomic risks. They will also gain an understanding of the importance of controlling risk through the introduction of innovative engineering solutions or by changing the way work is planned and organised.

The webinar includes case studies demonstrating the application of practical approaches to risk assessment and problem solving through worker consultation. The case studies also detail the tangible benefits arising from the interventions by way of reduced risk of musculoskeletal injury or ill health, improved human performance and productivity.
