I have not seen anything official but since our lab has had a series of techs with repetitive motion disorders we ended up ordering an automated microtome to see if it would help.  In fact, we are having the inservice on it today.....

I recently hear that OSHA has a requirement that histology labs are required
to have a motorized micorotme available - in order to be ergonomically
correct. Has anyone seen an official declaration? Thanks, j
