In recognition of Ergonomics Month, WorkSafeBC is hosting our third annual Ergonomics Forum. You're invited to join us for an afternoon of presentations and networking.

Presentations

MSI assessment tools
See practical examples from a variety of industries and professions on how to identify, assess, and reduce risk factors to ensure a safe, healthy, and productive workplace.

Office ergonomics
Learn how you can begin to assess your chair, keyboard, mouse, and monitor to ensure they are properly adjusted, to help reduce your risk of injury and increase your productivity.

Mobile office/vehicle ergonomics
Through hands-on demonstrations, you’ll see creative, practical, and safe ways to set up a mobile office. You’ll also learn how to improve your posture whether you’re in a car, hotel room, or coffee shop.

Innovative solutions
See how safety by design integrates ergonomics into the design process. You’ll see examples of unique and innovative solutions to workplace issues from students in KPU’s Wilson School of Design.

Opportunities for ergonomics/human factors
Learn how SFU co-op and practicum ergonomic students connected research and learning with the practical realities of workplaces. You’ll also hear about potential opportunities for employers to connect with SFU to guide the future education of ergonomic students.

Fatigue risk management
A fatigue risk management system (FRMS) is a risk-based planned and systematic approach that identifies, assesses, monitors, and manages the risks associated with fatigue. Learn how it should be customized to operations, based on a risk assessment, and integrated into an existing safety management system.
