Employers have a duty to minimize ergonomics-related hazards in the workplace for two reasons. First, injuries caused by poor design, repetitive motion and excessive force or vibration—often called musculoskeletal injuries or MSIs—account for a high percentage of all workplace injuries. Second, the OHS laws in all Canadian jurisdictions—either expressly or implicitly—require employers to protect workers from ergonomics-related hazards.
How to Use This Tool
Give this survey to workers to gather important information on any symptoms of MSIs they may be experiencing and under what circumstances. You can then use this information to identify, assess and correct any ergonomics-related hazards that are or may be causing MSIs.
