Home Live Webinar Shares How to Reduce Workplace Injuries in the Pharmaceutical Industry Ergonomics Done Right®

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, is proud to announce the availability of its new free webinar, Preventing Musculoskeletal Disorders in the Pharmaceutical Industry. Aimed at safety professionals in the pharmaceutical industry, the 30-minute live webinar will share best practices for reducing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which are commonplace and costly in a wide range of manufacturing settings. The complimentary webinar will take place on Wednesday, September 19th at 2 p.m. Eastern, and is presented by board-certified ergonomists Kent Hatcher and Greg Cresswell of VelocityEHS’ Humantech.

The pharmaceutical industry has some of the same musculoskeletal disorder risk factors as other industries, such as repetitive motions and manual material handling. However, it also comes with a unique set of challenges. Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations are the focus, and often, less emphasis is placed on how equipment will be used and who will use it. Furthermore, operations and equipment are not easy to change or modify once approved and installed.

Effective controls used by leading pharmaceutical companies will be shared.

Participants will also learn how to:
• Identify MSD risk factors in this industry
• Establish an ergonomics improvement process that fits their company structure
• Gain commitment of leaders
• Build and sustain effective engineering controls
• Discover new technologies and solutions appropriate for this environment

This webinar is the second in a series of industry spotlight webinars. To register, visit the VelocityEHS’ Humantech website.
