In the Laboratory

Laboratory workers face special challenges due to repetitive and sustained awkward postures. This online ergonomic training program demonstrates correct techniques for microscope and pipette work, as well as general laboratory safety. It will help prevent repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis.

Employees access the training at any time from any online computer and learn at their own pace. Clear step-by-step instructions and excellent illustrations create an engaging learning experience.

CorpMed’s Laboratory Ergo Clinic includes a Self Care Center for stretching exercises and a quiz.
