Mensch & Büro Akademie (MBA), Ergonomics Coach & Co.
Current training dates

In traditional form where knowledge transfer is concerned yet at the same time always at the cutting edge of labour science.
These courses are aimed at companies and government agencies that wish to provide all employees with valuable and implementable knowledge for healthier behaviour in the workplace.
Because the issue of demography has long since arrived in the companies: The lack of young people and an ageing of the workforce make it imperative to systematically train employees. So that they can keep themselves healthy and at the same time pass on their knowledge to others.
Multipliers and workplace health ambassadors are trained to recognise ergonomic and/or stress-related problems at an early stage and intervene preventively.
The training concept has been developed by the IGR e.V. in cooperation with the Mensch&Büro-Akademie and comprises of three formats aimed at different target groups in companies and government agencies. The areas administration and production are covered separately.

Ergonomics Coach Production - closed seminar, face-to-face seminar
What does ergonomics mean and what is the significance of ergonomics at manufacturing workplaces?
You learn to recognise ergonomic problems at different workplaces in production, to point them out and then, of course, to offer solutions. For example, possible changes at the workplace to avoid an unhealthy working position. The training does not only teach the necessary basics of ergonomics, participants also learn about the legal framework - for example, what risk assessment entails. They are also introduced to various assessment methods. Examples of such methods are the OWAS method or the Key Indicator Method. This all sounds very complex, but it is quite suitable for everyday use. However, it is always about the workplace and its assessment and not about the actual worker and their stress levels. The participants are taught the necessary perspective in a practical way.
The training is a cooperation between the Mensch&Büro-Akademie and the Institut für Gesundheit und Ergonomie (IGR). The contents of the training are subject to inspection by the IGR e.V. Nuremberg and the examination is also certified by the IGR e.V.
