    Recorded August 30, 2022. Jointly sponsored by HFES and the Applied Ergonomics Society, this interactive and discussion-based webinar will be centered around common anthropometric challenges faced by both academics/researchers and industry/practitioners, such as: • Use of biomechanical measurements, their modeling, and their application to real-world scenarios. • Using anthropometry as the driver of equipment, products, workstations, and work process design. • Implications when anthropometrics is not considered in design and how one must compensate or adjust after the fact. • Other related topics, experiences, and concerns raised by webinar attendees.

    Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), often stemming from ergonomic risk factors, are the largest category of workplace injuries in the United States. According to the 2021 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, overexertion injuries (lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, or carrying objects) are the leading cause for disabling work-related injuries, costing businesses more than $58 billion every year. Additionally, according to NSC Injury Facts, in 2020, the U.S. private sector experienced 247,620 MSD injuries or illnesses resulting in days away from work. To address the significant risk of MSDs, the National Safety Council joined with a major industry partner in 2021 and created the MSD Solutions Lab. In this session, NSC researchers from the MSD Solutions Lab will provide an overview of the initiative and discuss work to date, including the outcome of their scoping review on MSD literature in identifying the challenges for research, innovation, and collaboration, and the building of an index for tracking organization performance to support research into practice. In summary, this session will highlight the MSD Solutions Lab initiatives by discussing current work and plans for future innovation, research, and practice to help ensure that all workplaces are free from MSDs and MSD risk so workers can thrive on and off the clock.
