Abstract
On July 27, 1998, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a confidential request for a health hazard evaluation (HHE) from employees of Safelite Auto Glass in California. This request stated that employees were lifting excessive weights and using awkward positions when removing and installing windshields, and this had resulted in neck and back disorders. In response to this request, NIOSH investigators conducted two site visits in Cincinnati, Ohio, on September 22, 1998, and on September 30, 1998. This evaluation at a different facility was acceptable to the requester, as both the requester and management agreed that the work was similar at all Safelight facilities.
