Ergonomics in the Workplace - Practicable Solutions
Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm
Length: 3 hours
Location: MTEC
Cost: $69.00 (plus GST)
Description:
Part 8 of the Workplace Safety and Health Regulation states “when an employer is aware, or ought reasonably to have been aware, or has been advised, that a work activity creates a risk of musculoskeletal injury, the employer must ensure that a risk is assessed; and on the basis of the assessment implement control measures to eliminate or reduce, so far as reasonably practicable, the risk of MSI to the worker. Ergonomics involves fitting the job to the worker. Ergonomic hazards exist when the design and organization of the work create musculoskeletal physical problems for the worker. This workshop will provide you the basic knowledge and tools required to conduct a baseline assessment of your workplace/workstations and help you to identify and correct potential MSI injuries before they become serious. Serious MSI therefore lead to time loss and a potential increase of WCB rates.


Respectful Workplaces
Time: 9:00am-12:00pm
Location: MTEC
Cost: $69.00 (plus GST)
Description:
We all deserve a respectful workplace. When people at work offend, embarrass or humiliate one another, it can damage ones dignity and well-being. Over time disrespectful behaviour in the workplace can lead to an unhealthy work environment and a high rate of turnover. Part 10 and 11 of the Manitoba Workplace Safety & Health regulations speak to Violence and Harassment in the workplace and were recently amended to include a part on "severe conduct that adversely affects a worker's psychological or physical well-being". This half day workshop will go over employer responsibilities, appropriate and inappropriate behaviours and the new legislative requirements surrounding Violence and Harassment. This workshop will provide participants with information and practical solutions to help implement and maintain a respectful workplace.
