Credit: 1 Day / .7 CEU / 1.0 IH CM Point # 07 - 1980
Description: Investigation of strains, sprains and other musculoskeletal disorders often result in vague statements of cause and pro forma recommendations for corrective actions such as retrain on lifting techniques. In this seminar, you will learn how to use practical investigation procedures and simple tools to identify specific and correctable work-related hazards. You will also improve your understanding of work-related and individual risk factors known to contribute to back pain, shoulder rotator cuff injuries, tendonitis, abdominal hernia, and knee injuries.

Learn to
Identify specific and correctable work-related hazards and risk factors
Determine if an OSHA recordable incident based on a report of musculoskeletal pain indicates a high risk of similar injury to other employees doing the same work
