Ergonomic Assist Systems and Equipment Council (EASE), an MHI Industry Group, announced the recent alliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to share information on occupational safety standards, and on addressing ergonomic safety and health concerns, as well as the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers.
MHI member companies can join any of MHI’s Industry Groups or the Solutions Community. Industry Groups share information and conduct research to stay at the forefront of their industry. Typical Industry Group activities include industry statistics collection, standards development, technical publications, public relations, promotion of safety, and member and user education. The Solutions Community brings MHI members together with equipment and systems users to collaborate and address common challenges and opportunities in manufacturing and supply chain in a safe harbor environment.
