We will have to wait and see. Department of Labor DoL whose mission is to ensure safe and healthful workplaces in America. The agency is seeking 15 individuals from a broad cross-section of the industry who will be selected based on their expertise or experience with ergonomics issues to advise the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health on ergonomics guidelines, research, and outreach and assistance.

Those recommendations involving research will be forwarded to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health NIOSH , the federal agency responsible for conducting research and making recommendations for the prevention of work-related disease and injury. According to NIOSH, workplace musculoskeletal disorders are the single largest occupational safety and health problem in the U.

The announcement follows a statement by DoL to develop a workplace-ergonomics policy that favors the implementation of voluntary guidelines to prevent repetitive-stress injuries. The Wall Street Journal WSJ covered this issue on Friday, April 19, and reported that the Labor Department has targeted the nursing home industry as the first sector to be affected by the guidelines with others to be identified over the next few months.

Although ASSE did not agree with all of the components of the standard, the organization believes in the development and implementation of an effective ergonomic system to reduce workplace injuries. In that process, stakeholders can come together under the auspices of the ANSI Z committee to adopt private sector standards that safety professionals, employers and workers can look to for guidance in providing a safe and reasonable solution to ergonomic issues in the workplace. The committee has been developing an ergonomics standard to cover the Management of Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders since The committee is currently assessing the comments received during the last public review.

Armstrong noted, "Ergonomics is about what people do at home and at work and helping to make those activities more productive. Division arises when attempts are made to describe adverse reactions to workplace activities, which can range from discomfort to chronic, long lasting pain and pathologies.

The Institute encourages its members to get involved in the creation of efficient ergonomic systems and participate in the advisory committee to ensure that the expertise of the voluntary consensus community is reflected in OSHA policy and federal regulations.
