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...
Syndrome du canal carpien

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...
Des vidéos pour aider les médecins à diagnostiquer les TMS
Le protocole d'examen clinique SALTSA permet aux médecins du travail de détecter les signes précurseurs des troubles musculosquelettiques (TMS) du membre supérieur. Pour faciliter la prise en main du dispositif et guider les médecins dans sa mise en application, l'INRS et l'InVS viennent de réaliser une série de vidéos détaillant les manoeuvres à réaliser.

New tool launched online to help prevent musculoskeletal disorders
A new downloadable tool is now available to help businesses and organisations reduce the likelihood of their employees suffering from musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) of the upper limbs associated with repetitive tasks. MSDs are the most common occupational illness in Britain affecting more than 500,000 people every year and are often linked to repetitive work tasks such as packing on a production line or the regular use of hand tools. The Assessment of Repetitive Tasks (ART) tool, developed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL), can help identify where...
