Back Care Ergonomics

Learning objectives


  • Identify the health care tasks associated with musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and explain the role of employers and workers in reducing MSD risks

  • Assess the MSD risks associated with the tasks you perform at the health care facility where you work

  • Determine how to perform your health care work tasks in a way that reduces your risk of developing MSDs


Course overview


The purpose of this lesson is to familiarize individuals who work in medical facilities with the principles of back care and ergonomics in order to help them reduce or prevent work-related injuries. OSHA does not currently have regulations related to back care and ergonomics, but there are many reasons for employers to be proactive in reducing worker injuries, which may account for lost time, decreased productivity, and lower quality of work.
