Ergonomics Training Course

Unlike other health and safety training topics presented by Amerisafe, this course does not have a standard presentation since Ergonomic topics can be very diverse and range from lifting heavy containers to working on a computer in an office. Therefore, Amerisafe will always customize its Ergonomic Training Course to fit your organization’s needs. Although the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not have a standard currently addressing Ergonomics, Amerisafe will use recommendations made by OSHA and requirements set forth by OSHA-approved State Plans to develop the course.

Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card. This card does not have an expiration date unless requested by the employer.
