Reducing MSD hazards in the workplace: A guide to successful participatory ergonomics programs
In participatory ergonomics (PE) programs, workers, supervisors and other workplace parties jointly identify and address work-related hazards.

This booklet, based on a systematic review by IWH researchers, outlines six key steps that have been shown to contribute to the success of a PE program.
