01.
1. The aim of this course

Ergonomics

Work related injuries can create unnecessary setbacks for an employee or organization. Occupational therapists have great value in the area of ergonomics because they the dynamic interactions of the person, their task and the context and their environment. Therefore, occupational therapists who might specialize in ergonomics have the skills to improve the function of people interacting within a complex system of relationships and environmental factors at work.

Occ. Health

With the role of Occupational Therapists and Occupational Health Nurses expanding into occupational health, safety and wellness, there is a greater need for OTs and OHNs to improve their knowledge and skills to practise electively in places of work. This course is designed to equip OTs with the skills to help improve the physical, mental and psychosocial health of people at work, within an organisational framework.
