IT 328 - Ergonomics


Prerequisites: None
Provides a comprehensive overview to solve two complex occupational problems: cumulative trauma disorders (CTD) of the upper extremity and manual materials handling (MMH). Almost every occupational setting requires individuals to use their upper extremities and involves some form of materials handling. The objectives are to teach participants to recognize and evaluate the problem and then solve it through ergonomics, design, work practices, and engineering/ administrative controls. The overall focus will be on injury control, job evaluation and design.
