Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

It has been almost 30 years since the first publication of the NIOSH Work Practices Guide for Manual Lifting (1981). This guide has been successfully applied by ergonomists worldwide and demonstrated itself a very powerful tool for task design and injury prevention. The main objective of this panel, is to bring together the original authors of this guide in order to 1) share their experience of the early endeavor, 2) comment on the current development of industrial ergonomics, and 3) discuss valuable issues that should be addressed in the future. This panel session is sponsored by Liberty Mutual and the Industrial Ergonomics and Safety Technical Groups.
