Sample Ergonomics Program

This assignment is designed to provide an opportunity to apply the concepts
presented in the Unit II Lesson regarding the elements of an ergonomics
program. Specifically, you will be developing an ergonomics program.

As a graduate of Columbia Southern University’s Safety and Emergency Services
program, you have decided to pursue a career as an occupational safety and
health consultant. You were recently contacted by Will B. Shafe, the human
resource manager at On Call, the company that employs Ms. Handz-Hurt from the
unit lesson. According to Mr. Shafe, he is having trouble convincing the
leadership at the company to address ergonomics because there is no OSHA
ergonomics mandate.

Part 1:

You have agreed to assist Mr. Shafe by preparing a one-page minimum overview
explaining the regulatory requirements related to ergonomics, including the
history of the OSHA Ergonomic Standard and the benefits of implementing an
ergonomics program. Your summary must include references and should be written
to convince management to implement a program (after all, you are a consultant
and you want their business).

Your overview must include a minimum of two outside sources, one in which
must be from the CSU Online Library.

Part 2:

Six weeks later, Mr. Shafe contacts you again with news that the leadership
is more open to the idea of implementing an ergonomics program but needs
guidance on what should be included in the program. Using the information
covered in the unit lesson, prepare a sample ergonomics program for the
company.

Your sample program should be three pages in length, not counting the title
page and the references page.

Your fully completed assignment, including Part 1 and Part 2 together, should
be a minimum of four pages in length, not counting the title and references
pages. Include both parts in one document and label for
clarity.
