Description

When a workplace injury or fatality involves a product, the actions of both the employer and the product manufacturer are often scrutinized. Workers’ compensation laws forbid most injured workers from suing their employers, but claims against manufacturers of products used in the workplace are common. Such claims often raise complex questions about interactions between the product, the workplace, and the workers. These questions can involve product design, usability, marketing, warnings, instructions, and maintenance requirements, as well as workplace safety management systems.  
 
This presentation will discuss how human factors professionals with expertise in occupational safety and health can evaluate the conduct of employers, workers, contractors, and product manufacturers in these contexts, including illustrative case studies involving industrial equipment, control software, and chemical products.
