Construction Safety Ergonomic – Safety Weekly Tailgate Topic (Canada) Mobile App
The Construction Safety Ergonomic – Safety (Canada) Weekly Tailgate Topic is an app that can be used by employers or construction companies to promote workplace safety by educating employees and contractors on the use of ergonomic devices.
How does it work?
Many injuries may not occur from falls, heavy lifting, or other major disasters, bur rather from long-term, repetitive motion or improper posture or repeated hand-arm vibration. Ergonomic injury includes carpal tunnel syndrome, musculoskeletal disorder from improper back or lumbar support, and other risk factors. These injuries may not be sudden and severe, but ultimately, these do make workers suffer, and impact the quality of work performed.
A weekly safety meeting such as those included in the weekly tailgate topic series are helpful in promoting construction safety in the work place.
