Back to School: Ergonomics for Educators & Students
Show Notes

Students and educators are going back to school and most people probably don’t realize that there are ergonomic risk factors associated with the return to school that may lead to the onset of musculoskeletal injuries in both students and educators. In this podcast we will discuss the ergonomic risk factors associated with returning to school such as student’s backpacks; classroom furniture; technology (computers, tablets, phones, etc.); as well as classroom organization. Prevention strategies to minimize injury and develop a more active, healthy classroom will also be discussed.
