Ergonomics for the Aging and Obese Populations

There are two workplace populations that are growing in numbers and challenging our ability to properly set up the workplace environment, in both the office and industrial settings:iStock_000007207133Small

  • Aging population – older workers (55+) represent 19% of the U.S. workforce and are the nation’s fastest growing segment of the working population.
  • Obese population – the prevalence of obesity continues to climb, exceeding 30% in most gender and age groups.

The proper ergonomic setup for these populations can only be determined if we understand the physiological and psychological changes that occur in aging and obese workers.

Humantech is excited to present a web course on this topic on October 29th. We hope you’ll join us. CEUs are available.
