Safety Voice for Ergonomics



Add to Calendar 2:00 PM 5/21/20193:00 PM America/Chicago Safety Voice for Ergonomics Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) continue to plague the construction industry, and masonry workers are among the most affected.  Even though ergonomic solutions are the primary method for reducing MSDs, many workers – especially apprentices – have limited training on ergonomics and no training on appropriate strategies to respond to unsafe work environments.  The SAVE (Safety Voice for Ergonomics) is an interactive program that addresses these gaps by providing apprentices with training in applied ergonomic principles as well as soft skills for effective safety communication.   During this hour-long webinar including Q&A, you’ll hear about SAVE’s development, testing, and integration into existing masonry apprenticeship training from the project researchers as well as a representative of the Masonry r2p Partnership, a collaboration that has ensured its success. https://www.cpwr.com/news-events
