Ergonomics
National Summary

This topic covers ergonomics, or the science of fitting a job to the worker performing that job. Ergonomic hazards include repetitive stress injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other musculosketal disorders (MSDs).

The goal of ergonomics is to reduce a worker’s exposure to MSD risk factors by changing the design of a workstation or the way a job is performed, allowing workers to rotate through different jobs, or providing personal protective equipment (PPE). Although there is currently no specific OSHA standard for ergonomics, employers have a duty to address ergonomic issues under the General Duty Clause of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
