Ergonomics Training for Employees, Ergo Teams, and Leaders
Barbre Ergonomics Consulting and Training
Barbre Ergonomics develops and delivers customized
in-person, virtual, and narrated training programs and
trainer materials in a variety of topic areas
.

Employee training goes beyond "awareness training" and
provides skills that make a difference, such as specific
methods based on the work being done, and practical ways
for making the same work easier to do while minimizing
fatigue, discomfort, and injury risk.

Employee ergonomics training also includes workstation
and equipment positioning tips, and  
practical ergonomics
points that
most people can apply in everyday activities to
reduce effort and injury risk both on and off the job.

For leaders and teams, ergonomics training develops skills
and provides actual practice in conducting ergonomic
assessments, developing improvement options, prioritizing
risks and projects, justifying improvements, and seeing work
areas and job tasks wtih the "ergonomics eye."
