An Introduction to the Revised Strain Index
IHs and other safety professionals often have ergonomics responsibilities placed upon them with little to no training. We will introduce attendees to the Revised Strain Index. The Revised Strain Index (2016) replaces the Strain Index (1995) as a distal upper extremity ergonomics analysis tool. The revised tool examines: intensity of exertion, frequency of exertion, hand/wrist posture, duration of task per day, and duration per exertion. The Revised Strain Index is an essential inclusion in an ergonomics professional's tool box. The Snook & Ciriello Tables for Manual Material Handling Analysis
Overexertion injuries are the leading cause of non-fatal workplace injuries in the US. Overexertion is defined as excessive physical effort. In 1991, Snook and Ciriello published revised maximum acceptable weights for manual material handling activities. These Snook & Ciriello tables include weight limits for males and females, the capabilities of different percentage of the population, and other variables such as varying frequencies, horizontal & vertical hand positions, and travel distances. These weight limits are an essential inclusion in an ergonomics professional's tool box. Using Anthropometrics for Industrial Workplace Design
The Using Anthropometrics for Industrial Workplace Design session provides guidance on designing job tasks to fit the majority of the population. Anthropometrics uses body dimensions, including heights and reach distances, to best design industrial workstations to fit workers. Participants will learn about how to use this tool and apply it to the workplace. Ergonomics Strategies to Address the Changing Worker and Workplace
Globally, the workforce is getting older. There are two issues that IHs should be concerned with regarding the older worker: reduced physical capabilities and declining health. An understanding of the older worker is required to develop strategies and countermeasures to optimize worker performance and contributions in the ever-changing modern office and industrial workplace. During this session, participants will learn the key physiological changes and health concerns of older workers and how to meet their needs in an ever-changing modern workplace. Current Ergonomic Challenges and Assessment Tools
Demographers have labelled those born during the period 1995-2010 as Generation Z, which now comprises the largest proportion of upper education students and entry level industrial training audiences. This presentation describes a new upper extremity risk assessment tool (DUET: Distal Upper Extremity Tool) based upon fatigue failure theory principles. As products are increasingly made to custom orders, ergonomic hazards at the workplace may become even more complex. Can we adapt the old tools to solve new problems? Applying ISO 45001 to Manage Your Workplace Ergonomics Program
The causes of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) have been effectively managed by ergonomics programs modeled after common processes. The new draft 45001 safety management system standard provides an excellent model for managing an ergonomics improvement process. This presentation will illustrate the key elements of an ergonomics improvement process and how they are aligned with ISO 45001, share real industry applications and examples, and highlight the lessons learned from leading organizations and benchmarked companies.
