Outil d'aide à la planification pour une manutention manuelle sécuritaire
Dans le cadre d’une nouvelle approche de formation, l’Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) lance un outil d’aide à la planification pour une manutention manuelle plus sécuritaire. À partir de la Grille d’évaluation des situations de manutention, des chercheurs ont conçu ce nouvel outil qui a été testé par des intervenants en santé et en sécurité du travail pour en faciliter l’usage. Son utilisation permet de mieux comprendre...
A multi-criteria ergonomic and performance methodology for evaluating alternatives in “manuable” material handling
The objectives of this study were: 1) to develop an efficient multi-criteria approach for choosing the optimal alternative for “manuable” material handling, and 2) to apply the multi-criteria approach to a case study. In this paper, the authors use the single-word term “manuable” to refer to the definition “can be performed manually”. The case study results indicated that the use of the manipulator tested in this work may be preferable to manual material handling in situations in which the lifted weight is large (61% vs. 39%) as well as those situations in which...
Ceiling Lifts: Why Aren't They Being Used?
Using ceiling lifts to transfer, reposition, and turn clients reduces injuries. Sometimes though, even when lifts are available, they're not always used. This video challenges the seven most common reasons health care workers give for not using ceiling lifts. Source : http://www2.worksafebc.com/Publications/Multimedia/Videos.asp?ReportID=37077
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...
