OSHA Ergonomics Standard and supporting evidence review.
Occupational Health Review May/June 2001 p 3
Confirmation that the “Ergonomics Standard” which was accepted in the last few days of the Clinton administration, has now been revoked. The standard has been discussed in detail in a previous issue of The State of Knowledge journal Vol. 1#2.
The argument against the standard seems to have revolved around the economic burden on business. It is not clear that such objections would carry weight in the EU where employment rights/protection are already strong.
