Not every company needs their own professional Ergonomist, but every company needs an Ergonomics Champion to drive their program and ensure success.

Ergonomics Systems Specialist (ESS) Certification Workshop

This 5-day Ergonomics Systems Specialist (ESS) Certification Workshop, offers practical knowledge and skills to streamline and enhance existing safety systems with ergonomics to reduce Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). Participants will learn to identify gaps in their current safety management system, follow an MSD reduction process, apply assessment tools and technologies, implement cost-effective controls, evaluate program effectiveness, and drive continuous improvement. The course covers identifying physical and organizational hazards, assessing risk, implementing control strategies, and measuring program success. Attendees gain access to online tools and support resources.

Continuing Education Credits are available as well.

Office Ergonomics Assessor Workshop

Work from home. Hybrid work. Flexible work. Hoteling.

How we do work has changed. How we assess work also has to change. WorkSMART Ergonomics recognizes that the best way to streamline your workstation assessments and reduce costs is to capitalize on the resources that exist within your own organization. That’s why WorkSMART has developed a one-day workshop designed to train in-house champions in the skills necessary to assess and optimize the work environments of today.

WorkSMART combines a systems approach to build and sustain an office ergonomics program, along with a risk-based approach to preventing injuries and enhance efficiency. Assessors are provided with the tools they need to optimize both work and home office environments. Upon completion of the workshop, these in-house champions will have the skills to:


  • Build the foundation for a successful office ergonomics program
  • Assess employee workstations, in-office and at-home, as well as in-person and virtually
  • Provide immediate guidance to employees and managers
  • Adjust and optimize current furnishings, equipment and accessories
  • Evaluate the necessity of retrofitting or procuring new office furnishings, equipment, and accessories
  • Optimize flexible work options including shared office spaces and hybrid work arrangements

Training Testimonials

When I arrived here, I was skeptical as to what the program had to offer, but am leaving with a fresh attitude towards back safe as well as a wealth of information useful in the days and years to come.

Excellent job of keeping the sessions interesting and entertaining, answering questions, making the group feel at ease, encouraging discussion.

It was nice to work with a company that was able to provide us with exactly what we needed.

I attended your ergonomic assessor workshop last week in Edmonton. I just wanted to thank you again for the great course! I thoroughly enjoyed the course material and demos etc. that we did. I can’t wait to start using my new found knowledge to help others in the College!

This was the best training I have ever been in; you both have a good understanding of the needs of adult learners!!!! I liked the examples used. I took ergonomics before and can honestly say I understand it a lot better. I like the organization, professionalism, safe open concept of the group participation and enjoyed all 5 days thoroughly.

First off, I wanted to thank you again for the ESS course and follow-up, it’s been one of the most valuable and usable courses I have taken. And I’ve taken a few! I am currently doing initial training with all new staff, including garage and admin, for ergo hazards and prevention strategies and then follow-up with those who are having issues. Thanks so much for your ongoing help!
