Why do I need a Ergonomics Office Training & Certification

Unlike the U.S., Canada still has specific standards for ergonomic safety within the workplace. Part II of the Canada Labour Code specifically requires employers to ensure “that the workplace, workspaces, and procedures meet prescribed ergonomic standards.”
The code goes on to include “employers are also responsible to ensure that machinery, equipment and tools used by workers in the course of their employment meet prescribed health, safety and ergonomic standards.”
Because of these requirements, employers must ensure that employees know and follow any safe working practices that are intended to keep them ergonomically safe.
