Ergo Resources Project


An Outgrowth of ASSE’s Alliance with OSHA

To further understanding of ergonomics and the important role good ergonomics should play 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. ASSE shares with OSHA Director John Henshaw the vision that OSHA in alliance with ASSE and other organizations and businesses can create a "firestorm" of interest and commitment to lessening the threat of ergonomics injuries in every workplace.

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; and Lawrence Schulze of Houston, Texas, and Phil Jacobs of St. Paul, Minnesota.
