Printing Industry: 

Printing Industry Background Size and Scope One of the Largest Manufacturing Industries 100,000 Establishments and 1.5 Million Employees Over 80%of Printers Have Less Than 20 Employees Types of Printing Divided By Process Lithography, Screen, Flexography, Gravure, Digital Divided By Product Books, Magazines, Flyers, Textiles, Packaging, Wall Paper, Flooring, Electronics, Dashboards, etc.

Printing Industry and Ergonomics: 

Printing Industry and Ergonomics Printing Industry’s Response Strongly Opposed OSHA’s Regulation Not Opposed To Ergonomics Only the Regulation One Size Fits All, Trigger, Risk Factors, Job Protection, Grandfathering and Costs Embraced OSHA’s Four Point Plan First Industry To Sign an Alliance: 1st Alliance signed in June, 2002 Re-signed Alliance In February 2004 Agreed To Work With Each Other To Identify Solutions To Ergonomic Concerns In Printing

Printing Industry OSHA Ergo Alliance:
