Pharmaceutical manufacturing presents a diverse work environment with some unique challenges when it comes to ergonomics. Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations are the primary focus, and often, there is less emphasis placed on how equipment will be used and who is using it. To compound the problem, operations and equipment are not easy to change or modify once approved and installed.

To help you navigate through these and other challenges in the pharmaceutical industry, this e-book provides you with core elements needed to identify and prevent the causes of musculoskeletal disorder injuries.

The five steps to managing ergonomics in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry include:

  • Determine what to solve and how to solve it.
  • Establish an improvement process.
  • Gain leadership commitment.
  • Launch and sustain the right improvements.
  • Track progress.
