This paper presents the results of achieving compliance with established and proposed Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rulemaking, reducing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), and improving efficiency for rail and bus transportation providers by implementing an organizational-wide ergonomics program. Specifically, potential hazards affecting bus mechanics are identified, and methods to reduce exposure are detailed.
