Description:

If properly designed with well-selected tools, standing workstations may provide an ergonomically beneficial alternative to traditional sitting workstations. That’s why many companies have started taking a close look at them. But what they are discovering is that not all standing workstations are considered equal.

Taking time on the front end to evaluate a task, talking with employers and supervisors in order to gather useful design criteria information, and working closely with either an ergonomics specialist or a station manufacturer will help to ensure that the solution is more effective and that you achieve maximum ROI.

For example, addressing factors like height, surface, lighting, and configuration adequately could be the difference between a standing station that is well received by employees, safe, and has a positive impact on productivity.

Join us when seasoned safety and ergonomics professional Kevin Slates, Ed.,D., MPA, BS, CSP will show you how to evaluate, select, and design effective standing workstations and associated tools that address safety and health concerns, reduce injuries, and increase productivity.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify jobs and tasks in your organization that may be good candidates for standing work stations

  • Respond to the typical resistance to introducing standing work stations
  • Design standing work stations in the most ergonomically effective manner addressing key factors including posture, desk position, monitor and/or tool location, communication equipment placement, key object location, lighting, and standing surfaces
  • Select standing work stations that will work best for your specific activities
  • Determine the best tool selection from an ergonomic perspective for your workstations

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!
