||An ergonomics programme to control the risk of musculoskeletal disorders and to improve worker comfort and efficiency at the Library of Congress is described. The programme involved a commitment by upper management, establishment of a coordinating committee, and development by the committee of a written plan that included health risk factor surveillance, interventions and training. Consultants provided training for committee members and engineering analysis to support job analysis and design. Details of programme activities and costs are provided. An evaluation of the programme one year after implementation highlighted areas for improvement.
