Prolonging Your Career with Self Care

This presentation will address ergonomics, specifically for professional organizers. Ergonomics is the science of designing the work space to fit the needs of workers. Our discussion will include ergonomics for different tasks and activities organizers perform on a daily basis. Many professional organizers work in a variety of different settings, and as such, we will be looking at different environments and improvements to help reduce the risk of injury and fatigue. We will evaluate ergonomic risk factors and the most common musculoskeletal disorders organizers are prone to. Ergonomic improvements are an easy way to help remove the risk factors that lead to injuries and improve performance and productivity. The presentation will be a mix of lecture and interactive discussion, and the audience will be invited to participate in some some stretching and exercises to demonstrate self care techniques.

Topics to Be Covered:

  • What are Ergonomics?
  • Importance of Ergonomics For Organizers
  • Ergonomic Risk Factors & How To Decrease Them
  • Ergonomic Assessment & Evaluation
  • Adaptation of Tasks & Work Environment
  • Proper Body Mechanics
  • Corrective Stretching and Home Care Exercises
  • Other Helpful Tips
