A practical guidance for assessments of sedentary behavior at work
A PEROSH initiative Sedentary behavior is defined as sitting or lying with low energy expenditure. Humans in industrialized societies spend an increasing amount of time in sedentary behaviors every day. This has been associated with detrimental health outcomes. Despite a growing interest in the health effects of sedentary behavior at work, associations remain unclear, plausibly due to poor and diverse methods for assessing sedentary behavior. Thus, good practice guidance for researchers and practitioners on how to assess occupational sedentary behavior are needed. The aim of this paper is to provide...
Pushing and pulling: An assessment tool for OHS practitioners
A tool has been developed for supporting practitioners when assessing manual pushing and pulling operations based on an initiative by two global companies in the manufacturing industry. The aim of the tool is to support occupational health and safety practitioners in risk assessment and risk management of pushing and pulling operations in the manufacturing and logistics industries. It is based on a nine-multiplier equation that includes a wide range of factors affecting an operator's health risk and capacity in pushing and pulling. These multipliers are based on psychophysical, physiological...
Validation of the ACGIH TLV for hand activity level in the OCTOPUS cohort: a two-year longitudinal study of carpal tunnel syndrome
This study aimed to evaluate the risk of musculoskeletal disorders to the hand-wrist system. The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) proposed threshold limit values (TLV©) based on hand activity level (HAL) and normalized peak force (PF). We validated ACGIH TLV© in OCTOPUS, a large cohort study on carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Source:
Analyse des activités de manutention de journaliers d'une grande municipalité québécoise
Cette étude a permis aux chercheurs d'établir un diagnostic ergonomique des tâches de manutention les plus critiques pour les journaliers d'une municipalité et de tester une grille d'analyse des contextes en manutention (GACM) développée lors d'un projet antérieur. L'intention globale de cette étude était de mieux outiller les intervenants en prévention, afin qu'ils puissent se sentir plus à l'aise d'agir sur les situations de travail qui impliquent de la manutention manuelle, particulièrement...
Systematic evaluation of observational methods assessing biomechanical exposures at work
by Takala E-P , Pehkonen I , Forsman M , Hansson G-Å , Mathiassen SE , Neumann WP , Sjøgaard G , Veiersted KB , Westgaard RH , Winkel J Objectives This systematic review aimed to identify published observational methods assessing biomechanical exposures in occupational settings and evaluate them with reference to the needs of different users. Methods We searched scientific databases and the internet for material from 1965 to September 2008. Methods were included if they were primarily based on the systematic observation of work, the observation target was the human body, and the method...
