OSHA releases new ergo guidelines for shipyards (3/10)
The guidelines emphasize various solutions that, according to OSHA, have been effectively implemented by shipyards across the country to decrease work-related musculoskeletal disorders. An “Implementing Solutions” section offers examples of ergonomic solutions applicable to shipyards.
OSHA said it will work with trade, labor and professional organizations to assure that these guidelines and other effective practices are accessible and implemented where appropriate. The agency’s free consultation service will also be available to assist small businesses.
