Description and results


This project aims to implement a sustainable training program in ergonomics to improve male and female workers' health and increase the safety of Chilean women's working conditions. This project includes the training of two students in a professional Master's program in ergonomics at UQAM, allowing them to perform ergonomic interventions and teach ergonomics in Chile. As part of this project, 14 inspectors from the Ministries of Health and Labour and 14 union and community representatives are trained in ergonomics and gender. Activities also include an international seminar which brings together experts to share knowledge and good practices for improving workplace health interventions in Chile, while making them more gender-sensitive.
