"This publication presents ergonomic solutions that are already implemented within some foundries. OSHA
recommends that foundries consider these solutions in the context of a broader, systematic process that includes the elements described in this publication. Such a process will make it more likely that any solutions implemented will be both cost-effective and successful in reducing injuries. This document includes an introduction, a process for protecting workers, solutions that employers can use to help reduce MSDs in foundries, and additional sources of information on ergonomic applications in foundries."
