NYCOSH Forum - Ergonomics in Construction

Thu, Dec 5, 2013 at 10:00 AM to at 01:00 PM

Ergonomics hazards in construction work – not generally thought of as a significant danger -- result in tens of thousands of debilitating, crippling injuries each year.  Scott Schneider, Safety and Health Director of the Laborers’ Health and Safety Fund, one of the foremost authorities in this field, will discuss ways to significantly reduce or eliminate the risk of chronic pain and strain caused by constant lifting and carrying of heavy materials, working in awkward positions and repetitive motions. In addition to learning about ergonomics, participants will engage in activities to help them convey information on ergonomics to their members.
