The physical stresses and strains that industrial jobs can cause in the workers who perform them can lead to severe, even disabling, injuries over time. These “ergonomic” injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and lower back pain, often result in missed work time, reduced productivity and increased expenses.
MARCOM’s training products on “Industrial Ergonomics” provide employees with the information they need to understand ergonomic hazards, recognize them in their workplace and know how to avoid them.
All of the products… the new “Micro-Learning” and full-length online courses as well as the DVDs and interactive CD courses… discuss topics that are integral to employees’ understanding of these issues.
