"The course has brought us abreast with up to date protocols helping to improve the quality of OH at the workplace. The hands-on practical work in the form of checklists and assessments has sharpened our skills. Use of Internet in OH helped broaden my perspective and has helped me deal with questions and reservations that might come up when handling an Occupational Health case at work. This has also been a really great opportunity for me to properly train for and understand ergonomic assessments which were new to me. I have used this knowledge to better identify the ergonomic problems at my workplace. I have tried to alleviate some by creating better awareness and trainings. Others I am looking to improve in the long run with support from the management."
