Construction sector fact sheets

The construction project research team identified innovations that are currently being used on construction work sites. Fact sheets were created for each innovation, which highlight the advantages of the innovations to reduce MSDs, and improve productivity, quality, and safety.

Transportation sector fact sheets

Throughout the transportation project ergonomic assessments were completed on all major jobs and tasks and a list of feasible, transportation-specific interventions was generated. The interventions were evaluated based on their effectiveness to reduce the risk of MSDs. Recommended practices and tip sheets were created from the information gathered throughout the project. These recommended practices are presented for each specific concern in the form of assessments, task analysis. These resources can be found under each sub-sector: general trucking, courier, waste collection
