OSHA has begun contacting employers that were sent Ergonomic Hazard Alert Letters over the past five years. It’s the agency’s latest effort in its 20-year battle to regulate ergonomic hazards.
The goal: Ask employers if they’ve fixed their ergonomic deficiencies. Employers have 20 days to respond. If OSHA isn’t satisfied with your response, prepare for a surprise inspection.
To learn more, do a Google search for “ergonomic hazard alert letter.”
