CUNA Regulatory Comment Call
January 27, 2000
Comment Period for Ergonomics Rule Extended until March 2.
- On November 23, 1999, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration published its ergonomics proposal, which is designed to help prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders, such as an injury of the muscles, tendons, joints, etc. due to repeated motions or overexertion.
- The comment period has been extended until March 2, 2000.
- Many credit unions will not be affected by the rule and for others, it will have only a limited application. However, there are some credit unions with employees who are involved in manual handling jobs, such as those who sort, handle and deliver packages, that need to be aware of the standard for those employees.
- CUNA will be coordinating the development of comments with the Chamber of Commerce, the American Association of Society Executives and other similar organizations.

- If you have questions about the standard or want to share your concerns, contact CUNA Associate General Counsel Mary Dunn at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (202) 218-7769.
