Training session on Ergonomics and Body Posture at the Work Place

On the 24th and 26th of March 2014 we were with a cheerful group of workers from Centro Comunitário da Paróquia da Parede to talk about body posture and ergonomics at the work place. After analyzing the main advantages of good posture and ergonomics principles, we debated the practical aspects that should be considered by anyone who works with a computer for many hours.

Based on previous evaluations of the participant’s workstations, these sessions gave the participants strategies to minimize the impact of repetitive strain and harmful posture. Practical sessions will follow at each workstation, in order to improve working conditions and motivate to the adoption of healthy habits such as micro breaks and workplace exercises.
