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.

ASSE Call for Assistance on ERGO Value Project
To help in its second project, ASSE's Ergonomics Task Force is asking ASSE members for assistance in an initiative to collect information on how to measure and demonstrate the value of ergonomics in the workplace. This project has grown out of conversations with National Advisory Committee on Ergonomics (NACE) leadership, which has identified the need for this kind of information as it advances the ergonomics issue at the national level.
Specifically, ASSE is seeking information on cost justification and value analysis for ergonomic improvement efforts and would like to gather information that answers the following questions:
- What types of direct and indirect costs and benefits are used to evaluate ergonomic projects?
- What criteria are used to determine if an ergonomic intervention is 'effective' or not?
- How accurate is the forecasting of costs, benefits, and effectiveness?
- What types of subjective choices, if any, are included in the decision or approval process?
- How is this process different, if at all, from the justification or evaluation of other types of safety or health improvement projects?
- What types of tools or information do safety professionals need most in order to make effective choices in addressing ergonomic issues?
The information collected will be reviewed for possible development of a set of tools or resources for use by ASSE members and safety professionals in evaluating effective workplace ergonomics improvements.
Please forward your answers to Dave Heidorn, Manager of Government Affairs and Policy at ASSE at email@example.com.
