NIOSH releases book for Spanish-language construction workers

NIOSH has translated into Spanish a guide (.pdf file) outlining ways for construction workers to prevent job-related musculoskeletal injuries. The publication provides background information on ergonomics and musculoskeletal disorders from a construction perspective, as well as 20 two-page tip sheets describing equipment to reduce physical stresses on the body.

“Preventing painful and sometimes disabling injuries from stressful or repetitive job tasks is a wise investment for the well-being of workers, their families, and businesses alike,” said NIOSH Director John Howard in a press release.
