Course Project Part 1: Ergonomics Hazard Assessment
In Units IV, VII, and VIII, you will be building a course project that will assess ergonomic risks and provide strategies to improve a workstation of your choice. Your final project will be a PowerPoint presentation due in Unit VIII.
During Unit IV, you will focus on the ergonomics-related hazard assessment. Select a workstation that you are familiar with (preferably one that you work with regularly or have worked with previously).
Perform an ergonomics hazard assessment on that workstation.
What are the potential stressors of that workstation?
What are the potential ergonomic risks and hazards?
What type of injury could they cause?
Explain each hazard in detail. Your ergonomics hazard assessment should be a minimum of two pages in length. As part of your hazard assessment, you will include a minimum of two outside sources to support your findings. One source must be from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website, which can be accessed by clicking the following link: https://www.osha.gov/
