Muscular-skeletal disorders (MSD) are an increasing problem for the construction industry. A problem that can be managed at a very low cost with management support and an effective ergonomic program managed by the safety officer. Two cost effective means for reducing muscular-skeletal disorders is to implement an appropriate stretching routine (there is no one routine for all workers) and a hydration program.
Furthermore, OSHA can and does cite companies under the General Duty Clause if during their compliance inspection they note two or more similar muscular-skeletal disorders within a 3-month period without implementing a program to prevent the reoccurrence of those muscular-skeletal disorders.
With an understanding of the principles of ergonomics many of the health hazards that lead to a MSD can be identified and corrective action taken before they become a problem. And, with an ergonomic program implemented and monitored, costly OSHA citations can be avoided.
