HAMILTON — The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has launched an e-course that will help manufacturers manage pain and psychosocial issues in the workplace.

Managing Pain from Physical and Psychosocial Workplace Demands will help workers, managers and supervisors better understand the impact that common physical and psychosocial demands in the workplace can have on musculoskeletal disorders.

Participants will learn how and why people experience pain, and understand the link between workplace physical and psychosocial demands. Lifestyle practices and strategies to reduce pain will also be covered.
