Part I: The General Duty Clause

Using the requirements for General Duty Clause violations in Chapter 4 of the OSHA Field Operations Manual (FOM) and

any additional information you can find in OSHA compliance directives or standards interpretations, describe a situation

involving ergonomics that could be cited as a violation of the General Duty Clause (Section 5(a)(1) of the OSH Act). Explain

Part II: Interpreting OSHA Standards

Search the OSHA standards interpretations and compliance directives for supplemental information on three standards that

are important to your workplace or a workplace with which you are familiar. Discuss what you found for each of the

standards. Does the information change the way you view these standards or what you might need to do to comply with

them in your workplace?
