Abstract The explosion of work related injuries such as cumulative tramna disorders and the increased incidence of job stress, as well as the economic plight of most U.S. industries from workers' compensation and litigation underscores the need to improve the working conditions in both industrial and office environments. In addition the changing demography of the work environments due to the aging of the workforce, the ADA legislation and the influx of women into the workplace necessitate redesigning jobs and work systems. This in turn requires professionals who understand ergonomics, safety and health in the workplace and who are qualified to identify and implement appropriate design and engineering control measures. OSHA guidelines in Ergonomics and Work Related Musculoskeletal Disorders require a well-trained work force capable of helping industry cope with the problems. In response to this need for professionals trained in ergonomics and safety the Deparment of Industrial Engineering at the University of Miami has developed a training program in Occupational Safety and Health with emphasis on Ergonomics and Safety.
