Ergonomics is essentially fitting the workplace to
the worker Fitting the Task to the Human ~ Grandjean 1990
Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job to the worker ~
JJ Killer and Associates OSHA Compliance Manual
The better the fit the higher the level of safety and worker efficiency
Broad category of injuries and disorders called
MusculoSkeletal Disorders (MSDs)
MSDs are not caused by acute trauma
Occur slowly over time
Repeated trauma to the soft tissues
MSDs can happen to anyone from office workers and industrial employees to athletes and hobbyists
WMSDs are MSDs that are caused or made worse by work methods and environment.
They occur when the physical capabilities of the worker do not match the physical requirements of the job.
Tendonitis, Epicondylitis (Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow),
Bursitis, Trigger Finger, Raynaud's Syndrome,
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Back Strain
Repetitive Strain or Stress Injury (RSI)
Repetitive Motion Injury (RMI)
Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD)
Activity-related Pain Syndrome
Ergonomics can help prevent WMSDs that are caused or irritated by working conditions
Engineering techniques are the preferred mechanism
for controlling ergonomic hazards
This may entail redesigning the work station
Incorporating ergonomic tools to reduce the demands of the job
such as exertion, repetition, and awkward positions
Controls such as:
Rotating employees to jobs with dissimilar physical requirements
Establishing work/rest schedules
Training employees to use appropriate work methods when engineering controls are not feasible
The Job Hazard Analysis identifies safety hazards in the workplace.
It breaks each job into process steps making it easier to identify and eliminate hazards.
The JHA should be completed by someone who is familiar with and knowledgeable of the process.
The person should be knowledgeable, but objective. People who work frequently on the task tend to get comfortable, and can overlook hazards others would spot.
Observe employees in the regular performance of the job.
Videos, photos, notes, and sketches are good tools for recording observations.
It is important that the observer is completely independent of the work. Ensure that the employee know the purpose of the observer, and the don’t change any of their usual work practices.
Identify Control Measures
Engineering out the hazard or changing the process is always preferable. PPE should be a last resort, used if the hazards could not be removed.
