MISSISSAUGA, Ont., February 25, 2020 – MyAbilities, innovator in smart health technology and workplace safety, will host a webinar tomorrow, February 26, to help organizations reduce their lost time injuries due to poor office ergonomics.
“On average, the office worker spends two-thirds of each day at their desk,” says Dr. Michael Sonne, vice president of innovations and research at MyAbilities. “For the rest of their day, they’re often working with cellphones, tablets, and other electronic devices. Combine that with hot-desks and mobile offices, proper ergonomics becomes an even bigger challenge for the modern worker than it was a decade ago”.
Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) are on the rise due in part to the lack of emphasis by employers on proper office ergonomics. Posture, contact stress, and improper seating continue to be contributing factors of MSDs.
“Providing office ergonomics is no easy task,” says Jacob Lazarovic M.D., chief medical officer of MyAbilities. “ROSA teaches employees how to adjust their current office equipment for proper ergonomics in order to minimize injury and MSDs. Simple adjustments to your desk, computer screen or even your posture can provide long-term health benefits for the entire body. ROSA is peer-reviewed and has a firm basis in research, making it a great tool to be the foundation of an office ergonomics program.”
Created in 2012 by Sonne, Rapid Office Strain Assessment (ROSA) focuses on risk-assessment for ergonomics and provides guidance on proper setup for the workplace. ROSA can reduce lost time on the job by proactively improving office health for employees through proper office ergonomics.
This will be the second webinar organized by MyAbilities this year. A first one was held, January 15, 2020, to introduce JobXweb.com, the company’ s digital job profile analysis database.
