Is there any type of law or regulation about ergonomics about prolonged standing. Especially standing 8 hrs straight? Let me know with any other information. :confused:

I don't believe that there is a rule against that. The OSHA website is the best site to understand such regulations. It can be found at: http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/index.html

You may find it easier to just call them and ask. 1-800-321-OSHA (6742)...
