Webinar series

This three-part webinar series will introduce and orient individuals to the new CSA D500:20, Ergonomic design for ambulances and related equipment standard.

Paramedics play an integral role in primary health care, and face many musculoskeletal (and other) injury risks in the process. This new standard will help support and improve paramedic health and performance by strengthening the use and application of ergonomic principles into ambulance design.
