Prevention Day with the Saint-Denis Town Hall
Our students had the opportunity to participate in the day organized by the Mayor of Saint-Denis for employees of the city.
On this sunny, festive and very well organized day, our students took part in various fields of our profession.
For example, they provided advice on workplace ergonomics and MSD prevention. The preparation carried out upstream allowed them to answer the different problems encountered by the agents, as to the position to adopt, the movements to be made and the different settings of the workstation in order to adapt it to their morphology.
Another workshop focused on the place of physical activity. In addition to adapting the workstation, advice has been issued on active movements that can be made to prevent and improve work-related pains. Ballooning exercises or extensions on the ball have been proposed. Emphasis was placed on the need to move and change positions. This dual approach, both ergonomic and physical, allows to address some of the causes of pain with sedentary work
To complete this counseling cycle, a massage workshop was offered to the various staff. This moment of relaxation was very appreciated especially after the physical activities carried out during the different sporting challenges that the agents attended.
During this day, our students were able to pass messages of prevention and ergonomics to the various people present. They were very well received and the satisfaction of that day was on both sides.
This action illustrates the philosophy of our institute: practical training open to the city.
These exchanges allow us to create more links between us and the Dionysians and also make theoretical teaching more concrete.
We wanted to thank the Town Hall and especially Mr Elfort for the organization, the agents for their good mood and their involvement in the project. We will undoubtedly attend again this type of day.
