Construction Ergonomic Research & Solutions

Construction workers are at high risk for developing work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs), such as strains, sprains, carpal tunnel, and back injuries, due to the physically demanding nature of the work they perform. Significant research has been done on the work activities that create a risk for WMSDs. The following training materials, research and online resources can help reduce the risk and prevent injuries.

CPWR's ergonomics community of practice is focused on advancing the use of evidence-based interventions designed to reduce WMSDs, engaging stakeholders in addressing barriers to use of these interventions, and identifying new research needs.
