Ergonomic Training Reduces Stress, Strain, and Repetitive Motion Injuries

Novi, MI, Apr 13, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- Every office worker knows sitting at a computer all day can cause neck and shoulder pain, and contribute to nerve injuries in the wrist, arms and legs, but many don't know what to do about it. Symptoms such as these arise when people practice poor office ergonomics. Mastery Technologies makes it easy to educate office workers about how to position their bodies and computer-related equipment to minimize stress and strain and maximize their comfort and safety.

The new Advantage(TM) training course "Office Ergonomics: Improving Our Office Comfort," produced by CLMI, presents easy-to-implement information on proper posture and body positioning, monitor placement and adjustments, chair adjustments, work surface adjustments, eyestrain reduction, and use of office tools, such as telephone headsets and document holders, to maximize comfort and efficiency. The training also touches on simple stress-relieving exercises to perform at the work station, focusing on the neck, shoulders, forearms and lower back. Common bad habits are explored and discouraged.

An ergonomically correct work station helps reduce job-related muscle and nerve injuries, and the resulting lost productivity and workers' compensation claims. This video equips employees with the knowledge to adjust their body positions to reduce stress, and to understand the importance of monitor placement and chair positioning. Presenting this educational opportunity to office workers demonstrates the employer's concern for and commitment to the comfort and wellbeing of their employees.

The Advantage(TM) course, presented in high-definition video, is available for pay-per-play pricing at $19.95 per play. Mastery awards continuing education units (CEUs) for the completion of the course; additionally learners may print certificates of course completion from the web site.

As an Advantage(TM) course, lesson interactions are included, providing opportunities for the worker to apply what he or she learned. To ensure the promise of mastering all course objectives, each missed question is followed by a review of the specific content. At the end of each lesson's quiz, the learner's attention is focused on personal areas of difficulty until mastery is successfully demonstrated.
