The American Association of Occupational Health Nurses (AAOHN) is rolling out several additions to its ergonomics web site, www.ergoresources.org. The enhancements, which will make the site more user-friendly, include a new listserv, a new section containing downloadable templates and tools, and a more detailed list of links and other scholarly references.
"AAOHN developed this web site to provide occupational and environmental health nurses and other occupational health and safety professionals with the tools they need to address workplace musculoskeletal disorders," says AAOHN president Susan A. Randolph, MSN, RN, COHN-S, FAAOHN.
While there currently are many on-line ergonomics resources available, the philosophy behind AAOHN’s site is to offer free, educational information, with an emphasis on a programmatic approach to ergonomics.
AAOHN developed the web site in 2003 as part of its alliance with OSHA. One of the areas of focus for the alliance is ergonomics. The others include workplace violence prevention and emergency preparedness.
