Description: MARCOM's "Office Ergonomics" Videotape Program addresses how to recognize ergonomic problems, the potential of adverse effects, and practical solutions employees can use to help deal with ergonomic problems in the office. Every job makes a different set of demands on the body. Today the issue of how this impacts employees, and what can be done to reduce or eliminate adverse effects is receiving a lot of attention. While there is much debate about many aspects of ergonomics, everyone agrees on one thing... that is by using proper ergonomic techniques, employees can be safer and more productive as well as feel better at the end of the day. The Videotape includes information on physiology of the body, parts of the body most affected, eye strain, pragmatic preventative measures, correct use of office equipment, exercises and stress release, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.
The science of ergonomic studies is how best to fit the work environment to the worker. Engineers design equipment and tools that work well with the human body, but we are each different in so many different ways, taller, slimmer, shorter arms or fingers, longer legs, that creating a workstation that fits just us is virtually impossible. Other factors can affect how we relate to our work environment as well. Physical fitness can play a major part. Our state of mind can even have an impact. In this program well bring all of these diverse elements together to see how a little ergonomic knowledge can improve your health, your work performance, and even how you feel about yourself. First, we have to understand something about how the human body works. The human body is amazingly adaptable, whether its the heat of the tropics, or the cold of the arctic. There are just a few environments we cant adjust to. Some environments are tougher than others. In fact, you enter one of the most challenging every day, your office. If youre not careful things that you do in your workplace on a daily basis can injure, even disable you. The reasons for this involve your bodys ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. Ligaments are coarse bands of tissue that join individual links of bone together. Together bones and ligaments form the joints.
