Web Resource: Solutions to Control Hazards by OSHA
Posted on March 20, 2014 | in Ergonomics
“Solutions to Control Hazards” by OSHA contains information relevant to the implementation of control hazards in a variety of environments. There are three main groups of control hazards (engineering, administrative work practices, and PPE) that lead to the reduction of exposure to risk factors.
This site provides examples, success stories, case studies, and guidelines in an effort to limit the exposure to ergonomic risk factors. Different working environments produce different ergonomic risk factors and therefore a specific solution is needed to reduce the risk of an ergonomic injury. OSHA provides a set of guidelines specific to different industries such as: foundries, agriculture, baggage handling, beverage delivery, and others.
