The Posture Academy – Ergonomics in Healthcare (Module 3/3)

Everything about manual handling, at work and at home. Protect your health when lifting, pushing, pulling or carrying!


Back pain and neck pain are common issues, but they don’t have to be!

Welcome to Module 1 of the Posture Academy. Olivier Girard, an internationally recognized expert in posture and ergonomics and the author of The Posture Manual, will guide you in improving your sitting posture and mastering proper ergonomics, requiring less than the cost of a cup of coffee and as little as 10 minutes a day.

Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll learn in this final module:

  • why “bend your knees” is NOT the golden rule to lift loads

  • the 3 techniques to bend down

  • how to reduce the effort when doing manual handling

  • how to apply the Plan of Action that we discussed in module 1

  • how to move to and from the floor

  • how to bend down in all sorts of daily activities.
