U.S. Companies May Reduce Work-Related Injuries By Implementing Ergonomic Risk Assessments
Yahoo News - about 3 years
DES PLAINES, Ill., Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The rise of work-place injuries related to musculoskeletal disorders, which is costing U.S. businesses more than $20 billion a year, may be reduced if companies included ergonomic risk assessments as part of their occupational health and safety management systems, according to an article in the December issue of Professional Safety. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) represent one-third of all disabling workplace incidents and more than 40 percent of workers' compensation costs in the U.S., write authors Bruce Lyon, Georgi Popov and Kevin Hanes. MSDs are injuries or disorders of the muscles, nerves, tendons, joints, cartilage and spinal discs, according to the Centers for Disease Control.  "The lack of ergonomic principles in workplace design can lead to inherently flawed systems that are costly to retrofit and correct," the authors write. Implementing ergonomic risk assessment models and tools can help manage ergonomic risks and ...

  • 1989
    Age 63
    The court found that during the period "preceding June 9, 1989, an extraordinary number of murders, suicides, stabbings, and cuttings occurred within the Louisiana State Penitentiary.
    More Details Hide Details These circumstances created an emergency situation, and the defendant Lynn ordered an institution-wide shakedown … All 3,164 prisoners, including Elliott, were subjected to a visual body cavity search over a period of two and one-half days. To facilitate this massive search effort, Lynn brought in additional correctional officers." The court hence found in Lynn's favor.
  • 1988
    Age 62
    After his legislative service, Lynn was the director of the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections from 1988 - 1992, under appointment from then Governor Charles Elson "Buddy" Roemer, III.
    More Details Hide Details In his capacity as corrections secretary, Lynn was sued by an inmate who claimed invasion of privacy during a body search carried out on all convicts in the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola. Under orders from Lynn, David Keith Elliott submitted to a visual body cavity search. The searches were conducted in the general presence of other inmates, guards, and three bystanders. The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana granted Lynn's motion for summary judgment and dismissed Elliott's suit. Elliott then filed before the New Orleans-based United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in the case entitled Elliott v. Lynn. Elliott claimed that the search violated his Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights under the United States Constitution. The three-judge appeals court panel held that, while the Constitution protects against "unreasonable search and seizure," Elliott was not deprived of a "state created liberty interest without due process of law." Elliott had also claimed that Lynn was not entitled to the protection provided by qualified immunity.
  • 1987
    Age 61
    When Lynn declined to run in 1987, the seat went Democratic with the election of Caddo Parish Commission president Roy M. "Hoppy" Hopkins of Oil City, who subsequently died in office during the last year of his fifth term.

Layton, the principal of Northwood High School in Shreveport, by only 40 votes: 2,894 (50.3 percent) to Layton's 2,854 (49.7 percent). Lynn's House terms coincided with six other Republicans, including B.F. O'Neal, Jr., Arthur W. "Art" Sour, Jr., and Clark Gaudin. Three other members, A.J. McNamara, Lane A. Carson, and Michael F. "Mike" Thompson, had been elected as Democrats but switched their affiliations.
