Event Type
Discussion Panel
Occupational Ergonomics
TimeThursday, October 13th1:30pm - 3:00pm EDT
DescriptionThis discussion panel aims at presenting a streamlined framework that researchers and practitioners can use in order to develop a series of heuristic approaches to help systematically solve the workload problems among commercial cleaning workers. It also aims at sharing findings of the industry survey results from Washington State, the State of California’s new effort and the newly developed workload calculator based on the framework, and how the cleaning industry’s standard times and innovative tool and equipment development can be incorporated into the effort to improve work conditions among commercial janitors. This discussion panel will solicitate inputs from participants on how various players can contribute to the improvement of work conditions for commercial cleaners following this framework.
