Webinar - Improving Design for Ambulances Using an Ergonomic Lens: Lessons LearnedExport this event to calendar

Tuesday, November 24, 2020 — 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EST

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.

In this webinar

The third webinar in this series will focus more broadly on lessons learned from the lens of an ergonomist. Ergonomic principles are most effective when considered proactively, at the earliest stages of design. Examples and vignettes will be discussed regarding the necessity of gauging ergonomics knowledge among the technical committee, dealing with anthropometry and considering how to integrate ergonomic principles to improve design without restricting creativity and innovation.
