Abstract:
Manual Materials Handling has been historically recognized as one of the more prevalent causes for work related lost time injuries. Many manufacturing facilities use Material Handling Systems (lift/ tilt tables, hoists, articulated arms), often to alleviate ‘ergonomic’ stressors as well as to optimize production. If not used appropriately, Material Handling Systems can create new ergonomic concerns, or in some cases increase the physical demands of a job. A strategy designed to optimize the fit between the operator, the appropriate equipment and the operation is addressed in this paper.
