The number of occupations requiring the use of a computer, and the hours spent at a computer desk staring at a screen for an 8-hour day or more, is on the rise. Moreover, this does not even include the hours we spend on handheld, mobile devices.

The result comes in the form of eyestrain, back pain, and neck and shoulder pain.

In this FREE course, The Pain of Work: Setting Yourself Free, we focus on the four pain zones of the body that computer workers are most susceptible to: The Head Zone, the Neck and Shoulders Zone, the Back and Legs Zone, and the Tummy Zone.

You will learn how to Break, Back Up, Look Away, and Walk Away, to improve your health at work with the module activities, and practice desk exercises to relieve the pain alongside the module videos. There will also be a plethora of downloadable worksheets and resources at your disposal.

Managers with direct reports will learn how to create a plan for employees to help them eliminate their Pain in the Workplace. The end result: Decreased Disability claims, reduced absences, and even increased productivity. 

It should take you approximately 45 minutes to get through this course, including a 10-question assessment at the end, which you will need to pass with a score of 80% or higher, to receive your completion certificate.
