Final Ergonomics Program

By | OSHA | No Comments

Over a decade in the offing and delayed more by politics than science, OSHA has finally promulgated an ergonomics standard (29 CFR 1910.900), which will become effective on January 16, 2001. The standard requires that when an employee reports a musculoskeletal disorder the employer must review risk factors associated with the job, and establish an ergonomics program for that job if the risk factors meet an action trigger established in the standard.
