The hierarchy of controls
In this course, we cover tips for everyday ergonomic health and valuable self-evaluation tools, applicable to a variety of workplace settings. To start, we want to familiarize you with the Hierarchy of Controls, an established workplace safety protocol used to identify and mitigate occupational health and safety exposures. Watch this video for a quick overview.
To get started, please select the workplace setting most relevant to you. Keep in mind the management of an ergonomic safety strategy, no matter what the setting, should include:
including sitting desks, standing desks, and remote work done on computer
including posture, tools, material handling and work management
including repetitive motion, posture, tools, material handling, care for others, and more
