Abstract

Although the OSHA Ergonomics Standard was repealed this year, home care agencies and visiting staff should be conscious of the issues surrounding workplace safety. This article explains ergonomic terms and applies them to situations home care staff encounter daily. Helpful ideas to prevent these injuries support thinking in new ways to prevent injuries.
