NIOSH has updated its mobile app designed to help mine workers assess the ergonomics of common job tasks and identify potential worksite safety hazards.

Available for download on iOS and Android devices, the revised version of ErgoMine offers multiple new features:

  • Slip, trip and fall hazard identification checklists for walkways, stairways and fixed ladders
  • Forms to identify and evaluate risk factors for musculoskeletal disorders, including evaluations for hand tools, manual tasks and ergonomic workplace improvements
  • A fix list manager to assist with tracking worksite changes
