How to Develop and Implement an Effective Ergonomics Program
This manual explains the principles of industrial ergonomics and how to implement an industrial ergonomics program to reduce work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Although OSHA does not have an ergonomics standard, the agency has been prosecuting ergonomics-related cases under the general duty clause of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. Moreover, MSDs are the leading cause of lost workdays and workers' compensation costs. Total costs of work-related MSDs may add up to as much as $60 billion. Organizations that have implemented ergonomics programs have realized substantial savings in workers' compensation costs, lower absenteeism, and improved productivity.
Addressing ergonomic issues in the workplace makes good fiscal sense. Begin developing your program with this comprehensive handbook today.
