Ergonomics: Setting the Gold Standard Workshop Follows AMI Foundation Conference in March

Friday, February 21, 2003

Washington, DC-The AMI Foundation will co-sponsor a special ergonomics workshop, conducted by Practical Ergonomics’ Executive Director Regina Barker, CPE, immediately following the 2003 Conference on Worker Safety, Health and Human Resources in Denver, CO, March 23 - 25.

The “Ergonomics: Setting the Gold Standard” workshop, scheduled for March 26 - 28, 2003, at the Denver Marriott City Center, is designed for anyone involved in implementing an ergonomics program in their company’s plant. Attendees will include plant ergonomics coordinators, risk control professionals, nurses, physical therapists, engineers and ergonomics team members involved in daily running of ergonomics programs.

The workshop will teach participants the building blocks of a gold standard program, how to use technology to enhance that program, how to develop and complete an ergonomic job analysis and how to tie all the pieces together. The course includes free software to assist with paperwork associated with ergonomics analysis and job hazard analysis and the popular Industrial Ergonomics textbook.

Participants are encouraged to bring videotapes for analysis and consultation with the ergonomist as well as their laptops.

Bettcher Industries, Inc., also is sponsoring the workshop along with the AMI Foundation. AMI members receive a discounted registration fee of $595 for single registrants. For groups of three or more AMI members the rate is $495 per person. For all others, the fee is $695.
