Melbourne, Florida (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
When someone works at their desk all day, as most resume writers and career coaches do, it’s not uncommon to deal with challenges and repercussions of sitting all day, repetitive movement, and inactivity. Because Career Directors International (CDI) cares about the whole body wellness of their members beyond the success of their career practices, it was decided a complimentary member webinar on ergonomic tips to optimize the home office would not only be desirable but necessary.
The response to the announcement of this upcoming event has been a positive one. There is a high percentage of individuals who work for themselves who choose to do so to be able to work in a modified workspace that can accommodate personal health or family issues. To minimize complications and create a healthy workplace, ergonomics can be a helpful addition and preventative measure.
CDI was excited to find that one of their own, Posey Salem of Radiant Resume Career Services, maintained the expertise to lead this program. Posey is a Certified Advanced Resume Writer. She worked as a safety engineer and nation-wide occupational safety and health trainer for seven years. She was authorized by OSHA to deliver outreach training and achieved their 'recommended trainer' status. She is a Certified Master Trainer (CMT) and Certified Instructional Systems Designer (CISD) with a BS degree in Safety Engineering.
The program, Ergonomic Tips to Optimize Your Home Office, is scheduled for Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at 3:30 PM Eastern and will run approximately one hour.
Topics to be covered include how to optimize the home office using ergonomic strategies and best practices along with a discussion of discussion of chronic pain and injury resulting from cumulative trauma and ways to prevent injury and alleviate discomfort. More specifically, the session will explore:
- How to recognize symptoms of repetitive stress and cumulative trauma injury.
- Methods to identify the best height for desk, chair, arm rests, keyboard, mouse, and monitor whether sitting or standing.
- Strategies for making office furniture, equipment and lighting adaptations to accommodate individual body, height and vision.
- Practical advice for lifestyle changes to prevent and or reduce chronic pain and injury associated with repetitive stress.
- Tips for stretches and exercises that help to relieve tension in neck, shoulders, back, arms and hands.
CDI offers these complementary master classes to their members throughout the year in the form of webinars and teleclasses. An archived list of over 60 programs available on-demand to members can be viewed on their website. All those maintaining active membership will have access to these and live programs like the upcoming ergonomic webinar.
