Why, it’s ERRP!

USPS is working smarter and safer, thanks to the Ergo­nomic Risk Reduction Process (ERRP). It’s a process used to identify and control risk factors — such as bent wrists, improper lifting and repetitive motion — that can lead to musculoskeletal disorder injuries (MDIs). The Postal Ser­vice, its unions and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are working together to implement ERRP across the country.

The New York Metro L&DC and the Kilmer P&DC are off and running with ERRP. District Manager Vito Cetta helped kick off a Kilmer event by pointing out that existing New York Metro ERRP sites had a 26 percent reduction in MDIs during FY 2007 compared to the same period last year. They also ranked first in the nation in MDI reduction.
