In the last episode, I outlined what we as carer’s should be aware of to ensure healthy ergonomic practices and musculoskeletal development in children and adolescents, but what about the educators?

Teaching is a physically and cognitively demanding job. Teacher health and quality of life has been found to be influenced by working conditions, musculoskeletal comfort and psychological wellbeing.

By creating awareness of the risks of injury and educating the educators on how to reduce that risk, we ensure that the people teaching our children can do so without excessive pain and discomfort.

This episode outlines the risk factors present when teaching and what you can do the reduce the risks and stay comfortable and healthy in the classroom.
