Office Lunch & Learns
Participants will learn about ergonomics principles such as how to set up their workstation to encourage healthy positioning as well as learn practical habits for movement so they can “give their body what it needs while still getting their work done”.
Lunch and Learn training sessions are a good way to provide ergonomics information to a group or larger audience. The sessions are lively and interactive, focusing on providing workers with the tools and knowledge to work safely in front of a computer. The sessions include practical information that employees can use to make immediate changes to their work area as well as behavioural habits to help reduce discomfort.
While our most popular Lunch and Learn session is Basic Office Ergonomics, we offer a variety of specialty sessions, such as Office Mindfulness, Road Warrior Ergonomics (for travellers), and Basic Ergonomics focused on sit/stand solutions, laptop use, or other particular equipment. Call us to learn how we can tailor the training to meet your specific office needs.
Our clients have found great value in this session packaged with our Office Spot Check service where we spend about 15 minutes with each employee afterwards to ensure they have integrated the knowledge provided in the session.
These training sessions can also be conducted virtually with your group. Contact us to discuss how this would work for you.
Participants will learn:
How to set up their desk, chair, monitor, keyboard, mouse and other equipment correctly to support optimal postures.
Optimal posture and movement habits for computer work as well as common tasks with emphasis on our ‘Big 3’ fundamentals which are:
- Stable Base
- Hinge at the Hips
- Shoulders Anchored
The importance of creating movement opportunities for sedentary work, including active sitting, regular interrupt activities and breaks away from the computer.
I really appreciate your efforts, and I agree fully with all the concepts you teach. There is nothing more that I would love, than to get the culture of everyone here in woodlands to be proactive about preparing yourself physically for the job – office or fieldwork…it’s the root to many of the injuries we see.
