Learn how to use the REBA assessment tool to evaluate entire body postures.
The REBA assessment tool uses a systematic process to evaluate whole body postural MSD and risks associated with job tasks. A single page worksheet is used to evaluate required or selected body posture, forceful exertions, type of movement or action, repetition, and coupling.
In an all-new technical webinar on Prevention Pro Academy, you will learn how to use the REBA assessment tool to evaluate whole-body postural risks. We’ll walk you step-by-step through measuring and recording each task variable, and you’ll also see the REBA assessment tool in action through several real-world case studies.
