|State mandates ergonomic training sessions|
Due to the increase in musculosketal and cumulative trauma injuries across the country, Workforce Safety and Insurance is now requiring the University of North Dakota to train all supervisors and their employees in the area of ergonomics. Safety and Environment Health has developed a class titled “Train the Trainer for Ergonomics.” At this class supervisors will receive information designed to increase awareness of the prevention of musculoskeletal injuries.
All supervisors will need to share with those they supervise the risk factors and preventative techniques that will be taught at the “Train the Trainer” sessions. These training sessions are scheduled through U2 scheduling and will be listed in their newsletters. Please call 777-2128 to register. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Safety and Environmental Health at 777-3341 or 777-6232.
