OSS 19.7 Ergonomics 4/3/95

 The objective of this surveillance is to evaluate the safety of current work practices and work stations to ensure that workers are not placed at undue risk of injury.  The Facility Representative observes work in progress and working conditions to determine if the contractor is applying best practices to protect the safety and health of workers.  In performing this surveillance, the Facility Representative should recognize that specific regulatory requirements for ergonomics in the work place have not been established nor in many cases, have applicable national consensus standards.
