PIA Opposes OSHA Ergonomic Standards.
The PIA said it urged OSHA to delay proposing any ergonomic standards until further research and been conducted and evaluated.
"The standard remains vague and subject to broad interpretation by regulators and confusion on the part of printers and other business people around the country who will have to represent them," said Wendy Lechner, PIA's director of legislative affairs.
According to the PIA, Ms. Lechner challenges OSHA's numbers, citing the fact that OSHA includes items that are "not related to job-stress factors, such as normal aging, obesity and poor health."
