FORD GIVES $450,000 FOR ERGONOMICS STUDY

 ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 25 ~PRNewswire~ -- Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) donated $450,000 today to the University of Michigan for research in the field of industrial ergonomics.
 The donation, made to the Center of Ergonomics, was the third installment in a three-year research effort totaling $1.35 million. The goal of the grant is to help Ford identify opportunities for incorporating ergonomics principles into basic engineering operating procedures.
 Ergonomics is a broad-based science that examines the interaction between the worker and the work environment.
 Ford has been actively involved in ergonomics research for a decade. In 1987 the company joined with the UAW to increase its efforts by developing ergonomics committees in Ford plants across the country.
 The donation was made in a presentation to university officials at the Engineering School by David F. Hagen, general manager of Alpha Simultaneous Engineering at Ford.
