Course Project Part 1: Ergonomics Hazard Assessment
In Units IV, VII, and VIII, you will be building a course project that will
assess ergonomic risks and provide strategies to improve a workstation of your
choice. Your final project will be a PowerPoint presentation due in Unit VIII.
During Unit IV, you will focus on the ergonomics-related hazard assessment.
Select a workstation that you are familiar with (preferably one that you
work with regularly or have worked with previously). Perform an ergonomics
hazard assessment on that workstation. What are the potential stressors of
that workstation? What are the potential ergonomic risks and hazards? What
type of injury could they cause? Explain each hazard in detail.
Your ergonomics hazard assessment should be a minimum of two pages in
length. As part of your hazard assessment, you will include a minimum of two
outside sources to support your findings. One source must be from the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website, which can be
