Chapter 54: Ergonomics
The purpose of this program is to prevent ergonomic injuries.
It covers identifying, evaluating, and mitigating ergonomic risks. These risks stem from activities that require work in a restricted space or with awkward or static postures, repetitive motions, pressure points, vibrating tools, or forceful exertions, all of which can lead to injuries and reduced worker effectiveness.
It applies to workers who engage in these activities, their supervisors, ergonomic specialists, ESH coordinators, and the program manager; and the Occupational Health Center (OHC) and Building and Space Management.
