Abstract or Summary
  • This study surveyed a sample population of manufacturing companies in Oregon. Respondents were surveyed concerning their perceptions of ergonomics and their use of ergonomic consulting services from three potential sources of ergonomic consulting services. The sources of ergonomic consulting services were the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OR-OSHA), Workers' Compensation insurance carriers and private consultants. The study found that companies with less than 100 employees were the least likely to be familiar with ergonomics. Such companies were also the least likely to have used ergonomic consulting services. The perception of manufacturing companies of ergonomic consulting services was positive. Respondents felt that recommendations provided by consultants from the different sources were effective in meeting their ergonomic objectives. They indicated that ergonomic consulting services were useful and should be used more frequently. This was particularly true of respondents who had used services from OR-OSHA or services from their Workers' Compensation insurance carriers.
