This free online diploma course on Ergonomics Workplace Analysis begins by introducing you to ergonomics. Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements. You will learn about the six classifications of Human Factor/Ergonomics Methods as well as ergonomics awareness checklist. You will also learn about task analysis, Miller's Task Description and Cognitive Task Analysis as well as Hierarchical Task Analysis.
This course will then introduce you to biomechanics in workplace evaluation. You will learn about work place biomechanics and human variability, principles of biomechanics calculations as well as global models for safety and hazards. You will learn about the different instruments used for ergonomics analysis; Electroencephalography (EEG), Electrocardiogram (ECG), and Eye tracking. You will also learn the basics of Electromyography (EMG) and how it is being interpreted.
Lastly, this course will introduce you to assessment of mental workload. You will learn about the three types of assessments of mental workload: primary and secondary task performance measure, physiological measures, and subjective rating techniques. You will be able to explain the purpose of neuroergonomics in work evaluation. You will also learn about the effects of thermal, visual and auditory environments on an individual's performance and well-being.
