Study tests ways to increase uptake of ergonomic innovations

Ergonomic innovations in the construction sector could potentially reduce soft-tissue injuries or musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which represent 35 per cent of the sector's injuries in Ontario. However, introducing change is difficult because of the ever-changing nature of construction work. This study aimed to find out if “opinion leaders” — influential people from companies identified as respected trend-setters — might be a good way to promote new health and safety ideas within this complex sector.
