Ergonomics Education for Union Health Professionals. (Training Program). Final Performance Report.

Publication Date 1994

Abstract Over the period of this project, 226 union health professionals were trained in recognizing workplace conditions which put workers at risk of injury or illness, in identifying solutions for effective change, and in using epidemiological and other methods to isolate problem areas and begin to effect change. This knowledge should allow the union health prefessionals to actively participate in joint labor management health and safety, or ergonomic committee work. An advisory committee composed of union and academic experts was established to guide in the development of curriculum and training materials. Continued revision and refinement of the training manual have been guided by the results of an evaluation of the current materials. Students completed evaluation forms which included ratings of the instructors and usefulness of the information and encouraged comments and suggestions. Participants were not enthusiastic about the use of the traditional lecture format, and suggested using an activity oriented format.
