With all of the OSHA required training to deliver to your workforce, many employers are unfamiliar with California’s Ergonomic Standard (California Code of Regulations Section §5110 Repetitive Motion Injuries). This standard, which was implemented in 1997, is clear in identifying that employees must be provided training on repetitive motion injuries that offers information on the following: (A) The employer's program; (B) The exposures which have been associated with RMIs; (C) The symptoms and consequences of injuries caused by repetitive motion; (D) The importance of reporting symptoms and injuries to the employer; and (E) Methods used by the employer to minimize RMIs.
