Join us for an opportunity to discuss ergonomics in agriculture, including the challenges and MSD hazards.
"This webinar is held in collaboration with Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers for their members"
Jobs in agriculture can be physically demanding. These jobs often require employees to lift, push, pull, grip, reach, bend, crouch, and sit and stand for long duration. Exposure to Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) hazards such as awkward and fixed posture, force, repetition, and vibration can result in injuries.
This session will provide an opportunity to discuss ergonomics in agriculture, including the challenges, MSD hazards and controls using examples from the sector. Join us to share strategies for preventing injuries.
Employees should not hurt from their work in agriculture!
These events are suitable for agri-food businesses, specifically farm employers, provincially licenced meat plants and other food processors with less than 50 employees who wish to expand their health and safety knowledge, and share best practices.
