Website Promotes Ergonomic Guidelines


Website Promotes Ergonomic Guidelines

A new website published by the Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (USA) offers ergonomic guidelines for shipyards to use to reduce illness and injury rates. The purpose of this website is to present effective ergonomic solutions from various shipyards that have been implemented to address specific ergonomic concerns. Many examples from Japan are addressed in the interesting section Easy Fixes.

Due to the high injury and illness rates in the ship building, ship repair, and ship dismantling industries, a research study has been undertaken to better understand the relationship between these high rates, and the associated job risk factors. Once this association is better understood, effective ergonomic intervention strategies, in the form of best industrial practices, will be developed to reduce these injuries and illnesses.
