To help workers, managers and supervisors better understand the impact that common physical and psychosocial demands in the workplace can have on musculoskeletal disorders, the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has launched an e-course.
Participants in Managing Pain from Physical and Psychosocial Workplace Demands can expect to learn how and why individuals experience pain, as well as the link between workplace physical and psychosocial demands. The e-course also includes lifestyle practices and strategies to reduce pain and resources that may help improve the physical and mental health of workers.
The e-course can be accessed from the CCOHS website: www.ccohs.ca/products/courses/managing_pain/.
The e-course was developed in collaboration with High Point Wellness Centre. High Point Wellness has over 80 years of experience in the Canadian and American marketplaces providing health care solutions for a variety of public and private industries, insurance sectors, workers’ compensation and consulting organizations.
