Making the most of ergonomics and relieving the physiological stress from teleworking

The Czech focal point hosts a seminar on 7 October to discuss a number of occupational safety and health (OSH) topics related to the Healthy Workplaces ‘Lighten the Load’ campaign.

After kicking off with an introduction to the campaign, presenters discuss how to adapt workplaces using ergonomics; how to stay healthy while working from home; new forms of education and training in health and safety; and the latest updates on legislation in the field.

The event takes place at the Hotel Šumava with around 100 participants including representatives from the Czech focal point, the Occupational Safety Research Institute (VÚBP) and the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic.
