ERGONOMIC EDUCATION & TRAINING
Training is an important component of an effective ergonomic process and can be a significant health and safety investment for your company. Ergonomic training and awareness is necessary throughout the organization to insure that ergonomics becomes an integral element of the company’s standard operating and administrative procedure policies. Ergonomics should not be used only for crisis management situations.
ERGOSPEC offers a wide variety of ergonomic training and educational programs geared to reach all levels of management and employees.

Training must be relevant to meet the needs of the trainees by emphasizing the information that is essential for assisting the participants to reach successful performance and risk prevention objectives. Hands-On learning helps insure the training is performance driven by improving understanding and increasing retention. In this way, participants can confirm to themselves that they have achieved skill competency and give them the control level to use these newly acquired skills on the job.
Effective ergonomic training requires qualified trainers. Trainers should be capable in both training delivery and ergonomic technical content. Trainers with practical ergonomic skills experience usually provide the best educational environment for the participants.
