ON-DEMAND WEBINAR
Restarting Work: Optimizing Human Performance


Working on an assembly line can be a physically demanding job. Due to COVID-19 work restrictions, some employees may have spent the last few weeks or months either not working or working reduced hours. Changes in the human body due to a reduction in physical activity is known as physical deconditioning. It may involve reduced muscle strength, cardiovascular fitness, physical endurance, and range of motion, as well as an increase in whole-body fatigue and weight gain. Leadership must recognize that these losses could increase employees’ risk for developing musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) injuries and could also reduce productivity and product quality. These potential results need to be considered when establishing strategies for restarting work and employee reintegration.

During this presentation, participants will learn:

  • Which practices to implement to make restarting work easier
  • How to reduce physical stress on workers when restarting work
  • Tips to help employees return to work safely

Learn how to create a "restarting work" strategy that helps employees stay safe.
