||A corporate-wide ergonomics programme designed to combat continued increases in musculoskeletal disorders at a large poultry processor is described. The programme involved the establishment of ergonomics committees at each facility, extensive training, worksite analysis and task design, and the implementation of medical management procedures for musculoskeletal disorders. An ergonomics assessment was completed annually at each location to identify weaknesses and to ensure compliance with the goals of the programme. Benefits of the programme included reduced workers' compensation claims and costs, and improved employee morale and productivity.
