Fifteen ergonomics decision-makers, the members of OSHA’s National Advisory Committee on Ergonomics (NACE), will converge upon Washington, D.C. again in May to continue discussions regarding OSHA’s ergonomics program and the current state of ergonomics in business in the United States.
Topics slated for the May 6 and 7 meeting include a continuation of discussions from the committee’s January meeting. Other goals for the two-day meeting include setting up working groups on research, guidelines, and outreach and assistance. John Henshaw, OSHA’s administrator, will address the committee on May 7.
The NACE was developed as one of the “prongs” in OSHA’s four-pronged approach to ergonomics. The other prongs are guidelines, enforcement, and outreach and assistance.
