Description

Ergonomics Workplace Analysis begins by introducing you to the definition of ergonomics, the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements. You will learn about the purpose of ergonomics and the varieties of domains available in this field. Go on to study ergonomic methodologies, the six classifications of HF/E methods, and the overall ergonomics awareness checklist.

Then you will grapple with task analysis, the study of what a user is required to do, in terms of action or cognitive process, to achieve a task objective. You will learn about the purpose of task analysis and the different approaches to it. Delve into Miller's task description and cognitive as well as hierarchal task analysis. Next, tackle the psychological fundamentals of workplace evaluation.

Lastly, this free online course will introduce you to biomechanics in workplace evaluation. Biomechanics is the study of the forces generated by and acting on the human body. Learn about workplace biomechanics and human variability, principles of biomechanical calculations, and global models for safety and hazards. By the end, this course will equip you to assess the physical demands of a workplace on workers.
