Ergo Resources Project

An Outgrowth of ASSE’s Alliance with OSHA

To further an understanding of ergonomics and the important role ergonomics plays in everyone’s lives, ASSE provides the following links to some of the best ergonomics resources available. This project results directly from ASSE’s commitment to its Alliance with OSHA centered on ergonomics issues.

These resources were collected and rated under the direction of Lawrence J. Schulze of the University of Houston.

This project arises out of the activities of ASSE’s Ergonomics Task Force Members, which include Mark Hansen of Houston, Texas; Marsie De Oliveira of Austin, Texas; Lawrence Schulze of Houston, Texas, and Phil Jacobs of St. Paul, Minnesota.
