Ergonomic Checkpoints in Agriculture

The result of long-term collaboration between the ILO and the International Ergonomics Association is a manual compiling 100 illustrated examples of practical ergonomic improvements that can be achieved at low or no cost. The checkpoints each describe an action, indicate why it is necessary and how to carry it out, and provide further hints and points to remember.
They focus on ergonomically designed tools and on best techniques for handling materials and arranging workstations, physical environments, welfare facilities, teamwork methods and community cooperation. This invaluable training tool is designed for all those concerned with creating a better workplace in agriculture and rural settings: employers, supervisors, workers, inspectors, safety and health personnel, trainers and educators, extension workers, engineers, ergonomists and designers.
