New Exposure Assessment Methods in Ergonomics
July 10 - 11, 2017, 8 AM - 5 PM
Richmond Field Station, Conference Room 445
The UC Ergonomics Research & Graduate Training Program, the UC Center for Occupational and Environmental Health, the Bay Area HFES Chapter and the San Francisco ASSE present a 2-day course
on the latest updates, techniques and tools to assess physical exposures in the workplace. Over the
past few years, advancements in technology and well known and risk assessment tools have evolved
and allow for more precise exposure assessment and interpretation. This course includes seminars
and hands-on workshops for participants to learn about these new technologies and approaches to
measuring physical exposure and assessing risk for musculoskeletal disorders.
