Course Content Example 1:
The word, ergonomics, comes from two Greek words: “ergon” meaning work, and “nomos” meaning laws.
Ergonomics covers all aspects of a job, from physical stresses it places on joints, muscles, nerves, tendons, bones, to environmental factors, which can affect hearing, vision, and general comfort and health.
Course Content Example 2:
Physical Stressors linked to ergonomic disorders:
  1. Repetitive Strain Injuries (cumulative trauma disorders) are caused by repetitive motions such as typing, that would not result in undue stress or harm if only performed once.
    1. Carpal tunnel syndrome
    2. Tendonitis
    3. Tenosynovitis
