Advanced Ergonomic Design Workshop

 
June 19  Ann Arbor, MI
Nov. 6  Ann Arbor, MI 

1-Day Seminar*
2014 Schedule

This workshop builds on the fundamentals of the Applied Industrial Ergonomics training course and takes you beyond the identification and assessment of ergonomic risk.  Participants will learn how to “design out” the risk to begin with.  They will also learn how to evaluate existing equipment and propose methodologies for good ergonomic design.  Through hands-on experiences and group activities, some of which will be located offsite, attendees will roll up their sleeves and get to work.* View a short video from a previous course. 

The workshop includes The Handbook of Ergonomic Design Guidelines, a $385 value, and is offered in conjunction with the Applied Industrial Ergonomics.
