ORI Advance Ergonomics Refresher Course Description

The ORI Advanced Ergonomics Course introduces a systems based ergonomic model.

This is a new workshop for previous participants of the ORI Ergonomics Courses. The course considers the interdisciplinary ergonomic practitioner, with common methods and language familiar to safety professionals and management used by today’s practitioners.

This ORI Ergonomics Workshop will review the systems based ergonomic model to address: Ergonomics Best Practices, OSHA Standards, and Guidance, Healthcare Ergonomics, Industrial Ergonomics, Office Ergonomics, Material Handling Methods, Productivity, and Cost-Benefits of Ergonomics, Aging Workforce Tools and Measurements.

We will provide opportunities to reinforce practical concepts using case studies, while working in teams to identify solutions using best practices and standards. 

Learning Objectives

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of using a systems approach when designing, implementing, and evaluating organizational interventions.

2. Perform a systems analysis planning process for designing organizational interventions and developing business cases. 

3. Describe best practices in measuring, analyzing, and interpreting physical exposures in a job.

4. Recognize, identify, and prioritize the physical hazards within occupational task elements that contribute to the risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders.

5. Summarize other factors that are associated with work related MSDs and impaired performance such as cognitive, psychosocial, and environmental risk factors.

6. Illustrate proper application of anthropometric measurements for analysis and design.

7. Demonstrate knowledge of ergonomic approaches to the redesign of work by developing controls that reduce hazards and mitigate risk. 

8. Use a case-based approach to demonstrate proficiency in measuring, analyzing, and interpreting physical exposures in a job.

9. Use a case-based approach to demonstrate proficiency in the design process to mitigate exposures and risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

10. Describe a basic cost benefit analysis and calculate a simple return-on-investment to support a proposed solution.

You will earn 2.0 ORI CEU upon completion of the course, which satisfies 2 years of the ORI annual 1.0 CEU continuing education requirement.

ORI has several ergonomic certification levels - the CIE, CHFEP and CAE certification levels recognized throughout the US.

There is also an entry level certification, the Certified Assistant Ergonomist, CAsE.
