This is a project providing online and offline learning modules for engineers to increase their knowledge on ergonomics. This project was initiated by KAN (Commission for Occupational Health and Safety and Standardisation), Germany. During their training, engineers currently receive very little tuition in human engineering. The corresponding topics are adequately included in training only at institutions with human engineering departments. KAN's objective was therefore to facilitate the integration of knowledge from the areas of occupational safety and health and ergonomics into the training of designers, thereby contributing to products, work equipment and workplaces satisfying ergonomics and safety standards. To achieve this aim, it was considered necessary to create dedicated tuition modules on ergonomics.
Level of Education: Continuing vocational education and training
