Description:

This video depicts Participatory Ergonomics (PE) and how teams can help evaluate areas of ergonomic improvement. PE teams perform evaluations using ergonomic screening checklists which help identify strains, lifting/pushing/pulling/vibration hazards and awkward positions. Opportunities to practice good ergonomics don’t just happen at a desk. In fact, opportunities to practice good ergonomics occur if you stand for long periods or bend, reach or assume awkward postures to complete your work tasks. These repeated actions can lead to pain and should be avoided.
Watching this three-minute Safety Moments Video will allow you to learn more from our employees at Aeronautics in Palmdale, California.
