Ergonomic Workstation Evaluation
OSTS will conduct workstation evaluations of your facility, and production areas, to determine specific ergonomic related concerns; one of the most common injuries in the workplace is RMI (Repetitive Motion Injury). From the evaluation findings OSTS will develop a report that will explain our findings and give the necessary corrections needed.
Basic Ergonomics Class
OSHA has issued an ergonomics standard to reduce musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) developed by workers whose jobs involve repetitive motions, force, awkward postures, contact stress and vibration.
