Every year, hundreds of thousands of workers are diagnosed with musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). These can include sprains, strains, inflammation, degeneration, tears, pinched nerves or blood vessels, splinters or fatigue fractures. This e-learning training on ergonomics for industrial environments addresses the risk factors of industrial MSDs and how to avoid them.

Target Audience

All workers



Identify the main risks and means of prevention related to musculoskeletal disorders:

  • Risk factors related to gestures
  • Risk factors related to the physical environment
  • Risk factors related to psychological state
  • Prevention of musculoskeletal disorders

Course Content

  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Motion-based risk factors related to gestures, postures and painful positions, excessive physical effort, repetitiveness, duration, pressures, vibrations, cumulative effect
  • Physical environment risk factors
  • Psychological state risk factors
  • Symptoms and prevention of MSDs
  • Technical measures
  • Administrative controls
  • Proper lifting technique

Pedagogical Approach

Training based on high-quality, realistic 3D simulations allows learners to clearly visualize risk situations and applicable solutions. Many interactions are included throughout the course to ensure the learners’ participation and understanding.
