If you’re seeing repetitive stress injuries at work, you’ve likely got valuable employees waiting to heal, with productivity taking a hit. Poor ergonomics also leads to pain and reduced productivity, which can lower employee morale significantly.

The foundation of having good ergonomics is conducting accurate and efficient risk assessments. This can be VERY hard given all the variables. This webinar will provide you general information (and examples) about some of the assessment tools available.

We will also demonstrate the REBA (Rapid Entire Body Assessment) tool from beginning to end.

These tools will help you to make smart decisions and take proactive actions to reduce risk factors that lead to common and costly musculoskeletal disorders.

Good ergonomics not only helps you avoid more workers’ comp claims, it helps build a culture of safety, as employees are able to do their jobs more efficiently. Join us and get the inside track!


  • Provide an overview of Ergonomics and how to apply it to the workplace.
  • Introduce the REBA tool.
  • Break down the specific components of REBA.
  • Provide examples of successful use of the REBA worksheet.
  • Give options to improve REBA scores and LOWER risk
