Certification Program in Office Ergonomics

Two Day Course in Office Ergonomics

Course Overview

Developed by board-certified ergonomists, Humanscale’s two-day Certified Office Ergonomics Evaluator (COEE) Program provides participants with the skill set necessary to conduct comprehensive ergonomic assessments.

What Will You Learn?

On day one, attendees review how to identify and mitigate common musculoskeletal risk factors. They also learn how to evaluate workstations for fit and make adjustments that improve worker comfort and performance. Additional discussion topics include basic human anatomy, common musculoskeletal disorders, components of ergonomic workstations, and a review of current ergonomic research.

On day two, the program emphasizes the ergonomic assessment process – including our ergonomist-developed assessment method that often serves as a useful aid when performing field evaluations. Additionally, group activities focus on delivering employee education, affecting behavioral change, and handling objections. Day two culminates with a mock workstation assessment that applies skills learned throughout the course.

Program Agenda:

Day One

  • Identify and mitigate the postural risks associated with prolonged computer use
  • Learn to configure workstations for optimal health, comfort and performance properly
  • Perform objective research-based evaluations of work tools such as task seating, sit/stand devices, mice, keyboards, task lighting and more
  • Recognize equipment challenges and recommend cost-effective alternatives
  • Measure the potential cost savings of a proactive ergonomics program

Day Two

  • Develop proficiency and gain hands-on experience with the ergonomic assessment process through activity-based learning modules
  • Learn advanced techniques for delivering employee education, affecting behavioral change and implementing workstation enhancements
  • Build confidence in your ability to improve employee comfort and reduce the risk of injury
