ERGONOMICS AND MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURIES (MSI)

ERGONOMICS AND MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURIES (MSI)

The EFAS Safety Ergonomics & MSI Training is intended to help address the risk of overexertion injuries of the back as well as strain and sprain injuries to other parts of the body.

We address the risk of injuries or conditions such as tenosynovitis, tendonitis, bursitis, hand arm vibration syndrome, epicondylitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, radial tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, and trigger finger.

After course completion, workers will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the education and training. Workers will understand the risk factors present in their job and if there are specific procedures or equipment, they could use to reduce the risk of injury.  Workers, Supervisors, Managers & the Joint Health & Safety Committees will be able to confidently answer the following questions:

  • What are some early signs and symptoms of MSI, and what could happen if they are ignored?
  • Who should you report any signs and symptoms of MSI to?
  • What are the risks of MSI in your job?
  • What can be done to reduce the risk of MSI in your job?
