||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 are tools to assist employers in recognizing and controlling ergonomics-related risk factors. They are intended for retail grocery stores, supermarkets, discount merchandisers and warehouse retail establishments. These guidelines provide retailers with effective approaches, as well as useful references to be used when determining the need for ergonomic solutions. They can be adapted to the needs and resources of each individual store.
