Using ergonomics in the workplace to support older workers
As Europe’s working population ages, it is important to ensure that older workers are supported as much as possible to ensure they stay safe and healthy. One effective way is through the use of ergonomics.
On 11 November, the Slovenian focal point hosts a webinar to discuss the health management of older workers and the use of ergonomics. The webinar includes presentations and opportunities for participants to get involved in discussions.
The event takes place online with workers and employers, occupational safety professionals, occupational medicine practitioners, workers' safety representatives, and anyone interested in workplace ergonomics.
