How to choose between Office and Industrial Ergonomics? 
Office Ergonomics: ● Best for if you are a business owner looking to expand to more clientele● Best if you are looking for a side hustle as it's easier to get to do this on the side, although there are Industrial contract jobs as well● Best class to start as the information is a bit easier to digest and see if you like ergonomics● If you would like a full time, part time or contract position performing ergonomics in an office type of setting● If you want to perform remote ergonomics

Industrial Ergonomics:● There are usually a little more full time jobs in this setting than in office. So this is a bit better if you want a full time position. ● You already do office ergonomics or have learned about office ergonomics and want to expand your clientele

Benefits Of Attending This Course:

In this course, the attendee will learn an easy-to use, practical assessment tool that meets the industry standards of OSHA – The US Occupational Safety and Health Association.
With it, you will learn assessment strategies for structural deficits and underlying conditions you can use the very next day to start treating patients as a Remote Ergonomist!

Public Health responses to COVID-19 has brought what many of us have been preparing for professionally for years. New opportunities are available to the nimble practitioner who can pivot into a new engaging and profitable standard. Learn how to harness this revolution in knowledge sharing. Improve your inherent value and skill set clinically and beyond!

  • Tele-health physical therapy is gaining more attention as providers, patients and payers all seek more effective and efficient ways to deliver care. Tele-health will not replace traditional therapy - but it will give flexibility to provide services. 

  • Telehealth Ergonomics is a novel approach to computer workstation ergonomic assessment and modification whose time has come – especially with the current pressures made starkly clear by the new COVID-19 reality. 

  • Artboard 22

    This emerging way to work effectively and efficiently will reduce the personal cost of obtaining expert ergonomic assessments and interventions and provide an evidence-based and systematic program of completing ergonomic assessments remotely.  

  • Artboard 22

    It will also offer the astute and scrupulous practitioner new areas of expertise and commerce.

  • Artboard 22

    Quicker screening, assessment and referral can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery.

  • Using exercise rehabilitation and ergonomic based on virtual space can improve patient outcomes, save medical expenses resulting from spatial displacement - and program according to appropriate time for patients.

How To Use This Course To Improve Your Career or Start A New Career Path:

In this course, the attendee will learn an easy-to use, practical assessment tool that meets the industry standards of OSHA – The US Occupational Safety and Health Association. With this you'll learn assessment strategies for structural deficits and underlying conditions you can use the very next day to start treating patients as a Remote Ergonomist!
In addition, you'll learn what is usually not tight along side this course - business set up! You'll learn branding concepts as well as how to use free or very inexpensive tools to set up your business.

Business and Career Examples:

  • Some companies and facilities hire directly industrial ergonomists. So if you are not looking to start your own company, then YES this can help you separate yourself in the application and interview process for ergonomic full time positions.

  • Besides having being a potential employee and starting a new career path, you can also start your own ergonomic business! 
    How does this work? If a big company or facility does not want to hire someone full time, they will want to instead hire a contractor to come in for a weekend or a week, once a year or quarterly. 
    You could be that person that would come into companies, factories, technology businesses and help re-design workstations, re-design work flows, and conduct injury prevention assessments and even perform treatments!
    Typical rates are $150 an hour or if booking for a day then $1000 a day. 

  • Artboard 22

    PTA and COTA's looking to leave patient care but limited by their professional designation - you no longer are limited! Because you are doing "prevention" then this is not therapy and thus you are not limited by your degree. 
    Your degree will help you get hired as you can use your functional movement background to better conduct assessments and perform treatments but you can do this INDEPENDENTLY (unless treating workers compensation). 

  • Side hustlers - whatever your professional designation, this is an opportunity to grow a business while working full time. You could conduct your evaluations over a weekend or remotely and grow from one company to many.
    The cost to create a remote injury prevention and ergonomics practice is nearly zero!
