Our first virtual meeting in May was quite a success.  We are excited to invite you to virtual Past Presidents' Night!

The meeting begins at 6:00PM with local section announcements/business, a toast to honor our past presidents, and a short networking activity followed by a technical presentation by Melissa Afterman:

Ergonomic Tips for Working and Schooling at Home

Many people will continue to work from home for the foreseeable future and students may return to a Fall semester of distance-learning. What we hoped would be a temporary situation where we ‘made-it-work’ for a couple of months is proving to be a longer term situation; one that requires effort to minimize the risk of ill-fitted workstations and increased computer time. This webinar provides practical recommendations to address the physical, cognitive, and psychosocial risks imposed by working and schooling from home.  It will also address employers’ responsibilities for workers at home and discuss considerations for procedures surrounding equipment and virtual support for employees.

Melissa Afterman is a Board Certified Professional Ergonomist with 20 years of consulting experience and is part of the UC Ergonomics Research and Graduate Training Program. She works with organizations on ergonomics program development, risk assessment and mitigation, and tool evaluation and design for industrial and knowledge workers. She is also an instructor in the Online Ergonomics Program from the Center for Occupational and Environmental Health.

We’ve designed the evening to have one cumulative hour of technical content (equivalent to 0.17 CM point for ABIH Diplomates). 

Zoom login information will be sent to registrants prior to the start of the meeting. Past presidents are free!

We hope to "see" you there!  Feel free to enjoy your favorite meal or beverage while you join the meeting.

The AIHA-NCS Executive Committee will meet via the same Zoom meeting from 5 to 6pm to conduct local section business.  Interested parties are encouraged and welcome to attend.
