Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the largest single work-related illness and injury problem in the United States. This course helps transit workers understand MSDs and their causes. It describes MSD risk factors in the work environment and steps employees can take to reduce their risk of injury. The course concludes with personal precautions that employees can take to improve their overall health and wellness such as proper sitting, standing, lifting, pulling and pushing techniques, stretches and exercises.
Hosted Train-the-Trainer: This option is for organizations that plan on implementing the training for their employees using their own instructional staff. Participants preview the course and discuss how they can use NTI’s materials to implement it at their organization. NTI provides the instructor and student materials free of charge. The requesting organization is responsible for providing a training location and audio/visual equipment. Each participant receives an Instructor Package that includes an Instructor Guide, Course Slides and Instructor Notes and a Participant Workbook in hard copy and electronic format. A minimum class size of twenty is required.
