Abstract/Citation: Addresses employee exposure to ergonomic risk factors in jobs in general industry workplaces. Contains "action trigger" which identifies jobs with risk factors of significant magnitude, duration, or intensity to warrant further examination by the employer. If an employee reports a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) incident and the risk factors of that employee's job meet the action trigger, the employer must establish an ergonomics programme for that job. Specifies the content of this programme.
