||A major component of OSHA's approach to ergonomics is the development of industry-specific and task-specific guidelines to reduce and prevent workplace musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). These voluntary guidelines were designed specifically for the poultry processing industry. They were drawn in part from earlier guidelines for meatpacking. While the two guidelines are similar, the poultry guidelines include more examples of practical ergonomic solutions and use the terms "musculoskeletal disorders" and "MSDs" instead of the earlier terminology of "cumulative trauma disorders" and "CTDs".
