Ergonomics for the Maritime Industry

In a maritime environment, personal injuries can occur in a split-second, or are the result of repetitive tasks that are improperly performed. Ergonomics is the study of efficiency between workers and their environment, and how to make them interact safely. It applies to all types of work, from jobs on the deck to jobs at a desk. In this video, you'll learn how your environment - both ashore and at sea - affects your risk of injury. A mindful approach to your work paired with correct ergonomic technique minimizes the risk of both short and long term injury.
