Webinar Addresses Musculoskeletal Disorders Among Hotel Workers
A webinar recording available from the Center for Occupational and Environmental Health at the University of California, Berkeley discusses a new California standard intended to reduce musculoskeletal disorders among hotel room cleaners. Presenter Carisa Harris, PhD, PT, CPE, focuses on the research that supported California’s Hotel Housekeeping Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention Standard, the first ergonomic standard specific to hotel room cleaners, which the Cal-OSHA Standards Board enacted in July 2018.  Harris is an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of California at San Francisco, and in the School of Public Health at the University of California at Berkeley. She is also the director of the UCSF/UCB Ergonomics Research and Graduate Training Program and the deputy director of the Northern California Center of Occupational and Environmental Health.  To view the webinar recording, visit the COEH website.
