Abstract
The incidence rate for Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) within the Manufacturing Sector is 41/10,000 workers (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2007). Experience has shown that reducing MSDs can improve productivity, reduce workers' compensation and healthcare costs. To accomplish its mission, the NORA Manufacturing Sector Council has developed an agenda that includes surveillance, epidemiology, exposure assessment, etiological research, work organization, and control technology. The Council also aims to facilitate active partnerships between stakeholders within the Manufacturing sector and researchers interested in occupational safety and the prevention of work-related MSDs.
