Agricultural Ergonomic / Injury Prevention Training

  • Monday, February 7, 2022, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

CCEUC hosts Injury & Health Management Solutions, Inc. (IHMS), a Vermont company that provides industrial health promotion, rehabilitation and consultation aimed at promoting the restoration of movement, function, productivity, and health, for a virtual lunch and learn event. This event is designed to reduce the risk of Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTD) and other musculoskeletal injuries frequently associated with those employees who work in a farming or agricultural setting. This workshop will teach safe work behavior and body mechanics through hands-on practice of the techniques. It will also teach appropriate stretching and strengthening exercises that can be performed on the job. Emphasis will be placed on motivating participants to accept responsibility for safely performing work tasks and the caring for their bodies. Workers are encouraged to think of themselves as industrial athletes who must have a body that is fit for the job and that resists fatigue day after day, year after year. This workshop is a positive, dynamic, interactive, and educational experience for all participants.

The event is free, but registration is required.
