The Ergonomics Program helps employers in preventing ergonomic disorders that can produce physical pain and disabilities in our employees through sound safety and health programs. It is to be adapted to the needs and resources of each workstation, each job, and each employee as necessary. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the reporting of cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs).
CTD’s cover a vast number of physical disorders including carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis. They account for an increasingly large percentage of workers’ compensation costs each year.
This program comes in a PDF document format and can be easily edited to fit your company’s specific requirements.
Topics covered include:
- Management Commitment and Employee Involvement;
- Worksite Analysis;
- Hazard Prevention and Control; and
- Medical Management.
