Fall PDC Overview

Title: Ergonomic Job Analysis: Selected Tools from the AIHA Ergo Toolkit

Learning Objectives: By the end of this course, the participant will learn:

  • Why (and how) we use job analysis tools
  • A proposed two-tiered methodology for selecting tools
  • The information in the toolkit

Course Description: This 8-hour course will introduce the participants to the AIHA Ergonomic Toolkit. It will explain a two-tiered approach to selecting appropriate tools in different situations. Then the instructor will explain eight of the more than 20 tools currently in the Toolkit. The class will work through example problems using the different tools. Then the class will be given some jobs to analyze and they must select and then use the appropriate tool for the situation. If participants wish to bring video clips of jobs in their facilities to use in this final exercise, they are welcome to do so. Please bring the video on a flash drive.

Approach/Methods: The course will be lecture and discussion with example problems worked as a group.
