Investigative techniques

John Ridd


This webinar will take an introductory look at the use of measurement tools available for work activities, with the emphasis on looking for musculoskeletal risks. Many musculoskeletal injuries do not result from a work causation but symptoms can be provoked by what is done at work; these tools may help you to assess whether the work is satisfactory or has the potential to cause problems for some workers.
