dc.description.abstractAs companies in the manufacturing sector struggle with increased injury costs, lower economic prowess, and reductions in the workforce, companies are searching for cost-effective interventions with respect to both implementation and effectiveness for reducing injuries. Oftentimes, companies are not able to implement expensive engineering redesigns or technologically advanced equipment. As a result, some companies have initiated job rotation in their facilities. One major appealing factor of job rotation might be the relatively low implementation cost and quick application. Potential costs associated with the implementations of job rotation are training of workers in all jobs, initial quality reductions, and other productivity costs.en_US
