slide23
Use good on-line knife sharpeners

Install these sharpeners correctly

Properly maintain the honing and/or hollow grinding machine

Have knife sharpeners learn and use proper sharpening techniques

Maintain consistent blade shapes

Inform sharpener of cutting jobs where people are having MSDs

Knife Sharpening Program

slide24
Knife handles come in a variety of ergonomic designs, including soft grip, non-slip, and angled blades.

Knife Handles

slide26
Reduced boredom

Reduced work stress

Reduced MSDs

Reduced turnover

Reduced absenteeism

Job Rotation Benefits

slide27
Workers did not want to change

Machine operators didn’t want to “lend” to others

Education and training for new jobs

Finding appropriate jobs to rotate to

Used inappropriately by management

Job Rotation Implementation Problems

slide28
Reduce number of MSDs

Reduce rotations that increase stress

Reduce absenteeism and turnover

Involve and further educate employees

Job Rotation Goals

slide30
Insufficient Data that belts significantly reduce trunk loading

Insufficient data that wearing reduces risk of injury based on IAP and EMG

May strain cardiovascular system

Insufficient data that discontinuation of use increases risk among healthy workers

Workplace Use of Back BeltsNIOSH 94-122

NIOSH does not recommend as a tool for prevention
