Mr. Richard A. Jochum
Counsel
IBP Incorporated
Dakota City, Nebraska 68731

Dear Mr. Jochum:

Thank you for your letter of August 28 requesting a written clarification of appropriate recordkeeping practice for CTD case resolution and symptom recurrence.

This letter is to verify as stated in the Ergonomics Program Management Guidelines For Meatpacking Plants, 1990, that a case is considered to be complete once there is complete resolution of signs and symptoms for a thirty day period. If complaints reoccur within that thirty day period, you may consider it a continuation of a previous case rather than a new case.

If you have any questions or comments please contact Bob Whitmore of my office at (202) 523-1463.

Sincerely,



STEPHEN A. NEWELL
ACTING DIRECTOR
OFFICE OF STATISTICS
