Practical Demonstrations of Ergonomic Principles
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) often involve the back, wrist, elbow, and/or shoulder, and occur when workers are exposed over time to MSD risk factors, such as awkward postures, forceful exertions, or repetitive motions. These exposures sometimes occur due to poorly designed workstations, tasks, and/or hand tools [Chaffin et al. 2006; Sanders and McCormick 1993; Silverstein et al. 1996, 1997]. Workers must understand the nature of MSD risk factors and how to avoid exposure to them. In a classroom setting, trainers may discuss ergonomic principles and show examples of MSD risk factors with photographs...

Ergonomics at materials recycling facilities
Conveyor belts are used in several industries to move materials. Using these systems in the workplace can reduce the risks of Musculoskeletal injury (MSD) by avoiding the need for excessive repetitive lifting and carrying. However, conveyor belt workstations should be properly designed to ensure that operators do not excessively lean, stoop, twist, or over-reach, since these repetitive movements can themselves lead to musculoskeletal injury. The workplace, size of the conveyor, type, through put and height of material, and how material is handled, are all factors to consider when assessing the...
