‘Ergonomics for Drivers’: Washington L&I releases online training | 2019-05-29 | Safety+Health Magazine

Tumwater, WA — A new online training course from the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries is intended to enhance safety and comfort for all drivers.

The free, interactive Ergonomics for Drivers course provides step-by-step instructions to help enhance road vision, steering and braking while reducing fatigue and discomfort. During the course, users are guided through more than 15 vehicle adjustments – including the seat, steering wheel, head restraint, mirrors and seat belt – before hitting the road.

According to the Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety, remaining in one posture or position for a long period, including while driving, can lead to lower back pain, foot cramps, sore shoulders and a stiff neck.
