This particular section typically deals with the legal responsibility of employers to safeguard their employees' well-being while at work. ERR involves a structured process of evaluating and recognizing potential ergonomic hazards and risks that might arise from the design of workstations, equipment, and job tasks. The main goal is to proactively address issues like repetitive motions, uncomfortable postures, excessive force requirements, and other ergonomic stressors that could lead to muscle and skeletal problems, as well as workplace injuries. By carrying out ERR as mandated by Section 6(1)(a), employers can take necessary steps to create workspaces that are ergonomically friendly, which, in turn, enhances employee health, productivity, and overall workplace safety.
