Industrial Ergonomics Video and DVD Excerpt:
We make hundreds of different movements to get our jobs done. If we aren't careful some of these can place an unhealthy strain or stress on the muscle's tendons and nerves that make our bodies work. We can solve this problem by taking a look at ergonomics. Ergonomics is a science that shows us how to avoid making stressful movements while we work. Following ergonomic principals will allow us to interact with our tools and materials more safely and efficiently. To begin with, you need to look at how you're built. Go ahead, take a look at yourself. Are you smaller or are you taller than most of your coworkers? Does the length of your arms or legs make your work space uncomfortable? We all come in different shapes and sizes to put less stress on our bodies and to perform most efficiently we often need to adapt our workspaces for a better fit. For instance, tools and materials can be brought closer to eliminate awkward movements. Monitors and readouts can be positioned for easier visibility. Making these types of adjustments minimizes the amount of stress and strain we place on our bodies. Remember you and your work space are a team, you need to work together. Talk to your supervisor about adjustments that will improve your efficiency. Once you're comfortable with your work space, you need to pay attention to your body mechanics.
