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 Automotive Industry. The 30-minute live webinar is aimed at safety professionals in the automotive industry, including OEMs and suppliers. Board-certified ergonomists Deepesh Desai and Kent Hatcher will share best practices for reducing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which are commonplace and costly. Registration is required to attend this complimentary webinar on Wednesday, November 7th at 2 p.m. Eastern.
The automotive industry has many of the same musculoskeletal disorder risk factors as other industrial environments, such as repetitive motions and manual material handling. But, a complex assembly process, varied tooling and workstation setups, plus numerous product design changes can contribute to a higher-than-average risk for workplace injury. Effective controls used by leading companies will be shared.
Participants will learn how to:
- identify MSD risk factors that are specific to the automotive industry.
- establish an ergonomics improvement process that fits their company culture and needs.
- gain commitment from leaders and collaboration with unions.
- build and sustain effective engineering controls.
- discover new technologies and solutions appropriate for this environment.
This webinar is the third in a series of industry spotlight webinars. To register, visit VelocityEHS’ Humantech website.
