Ergocoach course VDU work

If employees, at home or at the office, perform intensive repetitive work and sit behind a screen for a long time, there is an increased risk of complaints of the arm, neck, back or shoulders. To prevent complaints from computer work, employees must be in good shape and use their bodies sensibly. This can be achieved by giving employees practical instructions about factors that influence vitality, employability and the development and prevention of injuries related to computer use. The ERGOCOACH MONITORING course gives employees the necessary knowledge to advise colleagues.

RESULT

After the Ergocoach VDU course, you can advise and coach colleagues on:

  • physical strain during VDU work
  • the risks and their consequences
  • how it can be positively influenced by posture, exercise habits, behavior and workplace optimization.

You can analyze work behavior and working conditions in a practical and efficient way. This allows you to give good advice about healthy work habits, work organization and the use of aids.

COURSE PROGRAM

The Ergocoach / Office Workplace Consultant course consists of a mix of theory, demonstrations, discussions, practical simulations and exercises.
Ergocoaches must first of all be able to analyse various forms of work behaviour in a practical and efficient manner. Subsequently, they are expected to provide expert advice on how to deal with physical load, healthy working habits and the use of aids. We pay a lot of attention to communication skills, so that the ergo coach can transfer knowledge and insight to colleagues and, where necessary, also know how to motivate them to change their behavior.
