Ergonomics Announcement To Be Made At Later Date

WASHINGTON - The Department of Labor announced today that, in the wake of last week's events, the Department will temporarily postpone the announcement of a plan of action on ergonomics.

The announcement, which was expected this month, will be made later this Fall.

In July, the Department conducted three forums in Virginia, Illinois, and California, to solicit public comment on ergonomics. Witness testimony and written comments are under review.

Staff of the Department and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration have been heavily involved in the rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon during the past week, which has prevented the Department from devoting full attention to this important issue.
