1) Appoint an ergonomics team to provide feedback on problem areas and to work on ergonomic projects.
2) Name employees and management to the team. Once assembled, provide ongoing training.
3) Assign team leaders from operations or engineering, since most ergonomics issues reside there. Safety and health experts should be members.
4) Develop an analysis system that allows the team to complete an ergonomic evaluation of a job. Include processes for identifying hazards, developing possible solutions and implementing follow- up controls.
5) Expect teams to work on five to 10 detailed projects per year. They also should be completing 10 to 20 “quick fixes,” simple projects that can be done rapidly without detailed analysis.
6) Budget enough to complete the team’s recommended redesigns.
