The application of ergonomic assessment tools within industrial settings may seem daunting and overwhelming but, it doesn’t have to be that way. Industrial ergonomic evaluations don’t always have to include complicated calculations and measurement tools.
This session will concentrate on reviewing practical approaches to ergonomic assessments while discussing techniques to streamline the assessment process. A sampling of various material handling hazards and repetitive motion exposures will be reviewed along with practical, easy-to-implement solutions that may reduce the likelihood of injury and minimize exposures within production environments. Emphasis will be placed on addressing the design of the workplace pro-actively which includes determining conveyor height design, proper tool selection, use of adjustable worktables and lift/rotational tables. Long term employee comfort is essential to prevent the exposure of chronic musculoskeletal injuries and can be obtained through ergonomic design and intervention.
