Ergonomics - Definition, Costs, and Enforcement

Provider: Mason Contractors Association of America
Discipline: Safety
Credits: 1.00

Each year employers experience heavy financial losses associated with Musculoskeletal Disorders or MSDs. Few if any employers have not had to deal with an employee back, shoulder or wrist injury resulting from soft tissue damage. OSHA’s response has been to target ergonomics, the design of the workplace/jobsite to fit the user. Although a regulatory approach has failed, OSHA continues to try to use existing authority provided by the General Duty clause in the OSH Act to force employers to address this hazard. In addition, recent changes to the recordkeeping regulations require employers to log MSDs separately putting ergonomics in the spotlight for compliance officers.

This webinar will look at common ergonomic hazards on a jobsite, their cost to employers and how both the hazards and potential MSDs can be prevented. It will also review OSHA’s use of the General Duty clause for enforcement as well as MSD recordkeeping as addressed in OSHA’s compliance directive.
