Research: Industrial Hygiene, Ergonomics, Exposure Assessment, Public Health

James D. McGlothlin, Ph.D., is studying the relationships between ergonomics, epidemiology and industrial hygiene to evaluate and control physical, chemical, and biological hazards in the occupational environment. Dr. McGlothlin develops and administers ergonomic programs to prevent musculoskeletal injuries, promote health, and improve productivity and quality in the workplace. Most recently, he has been working on methods to integrate real-time sampling methods with videography to develop more accurate worker risk assessment profiles and to develop more cost-effective controls.
