PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSES (PDCS)

These courses are scheduled the day prior to the Safety Forum (Oct 1)

Option 1: Ergonomics – Managing for Results
Repetitive motion and overexertion are the biggest risk factors facing American workers. The one-day NSC Ergonomics course will teach you how to reduce the number and severity of musculoskeletal injuries in your workplace through a practical and effective program. Discussions, demonstrations and exercises explain the importance of keeping employees free from ergonomic injuries. You’ll also learn how to recognize risk factors, conduct an ergonomic worksite analysis, evaluate and rank hazards, and select appropriate control methods.

Option 2: Safety Inspections
Our course provides an overview of the safety and health inspection process, then examines specific techniques to improve the process. It also addresses basic skills for conducting various types of inspections and correcting identified hazards. Students will be provided with the knowledge necessary not only to meet regulatory requirements, but to positively impact their organization’s injury prevention efforts.
