Course Description:

The challenge of maintaining a clinician’s physical health while providing effective and efficient patient care remains a challenge that is all too familiar. Join us for our “Dental Ergonomics” training module where we will explore different posture correcting techniques and options providers can employ to address various repetitive motion and musculoskeletal hazards in the workplace.

The purpose of an ergonomics program is to apply ergonomic principles to the workplace to reduce the number and severity of MSDs, thus decreasing workers’ compensation claims and, where possible, increase productivity, quality, and efficiency. An ergonomically sound work environment maximizes employee comfort while minimizing the risk of undue physical stress.

The program provides a proactive approach focuses on making changes when risks have already been identified, as well as incorporating ergonomics into the design phase of a new facility or process, into purchasing new equipment or tools, and into the contemplation of scheduling changes.
