Abstract : At the request of Hill AFB Hospital Commander, the AFOEHL in conjunction with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health conducted an ergonomics assessment at Hill AFB from 29 Oct - 2 Nov 90. The survey was conducted at preselected industrial shops that had demonstrated a high occupational illness rate for cumulative trauma disorders or back injuries. Recommendations were made to correct bad postures: awkward work practices; inappropriate glove use; tool design; fixture design; and manual lifting practices.
