Maine’s average worker is 47.5 years old. The demographics of our workforce are shifting, with the steepest growth in workers 65 and older. This age group is expected to triple in the next 40 years. As employers, we are faced with the challenges of understanding the capabilities of the aging worker and accommodating those physiological changes.

This webinar will focus on ergonomics of the work environment and how best to accommodate the aging worker. You will learn how to identify and correct workstation hazards, perform a workstation analysis using the 10 Tips for a Better Fit Worksheet, and practice stretches that could be utilized in a workplace stretch program.
