Ergonomics Pocket Guide

On March 6, 2001, with the urging of President Bush, the US Senate voted to repeal the OSHA Ergonomics standard. One day later the US House of Representatives followed suit. While Genium Publishing Corporation understands and respects some of the objections certain interest groups had with the new law, we are left to wonder why compromise was not considered. The true losers are those who have suffered or will suffer job induced musculoskeletal disorders simply because they and their employers are unaware that these hazards exist.

In light of this unfortunate decision on the part of our elected leaders, Genium has suspended plans to produce the second edition of the Ergonomics Pocket Guide. Much of the content planned for the new release focused on the requirements of the standard. Since the standard will not be enforced, the planned Guide can not serve the purposes for which it was intended.

We apologize for this inconvenience and urge you to continue your efforts to educate employees about the dangers of job-related musculoskeletal hazards. It may no longer be the law but it remains the right and proper thing to do.
