Ergonomic Review of Work Processes

In any production process there is a standard way of doing things - or at least there should be. These Standard Operating Procedures (SOP's) should be set out in detail when designing the work. Work done in one depot should be done in the same way as in another depending only on the ergonomic setup of that plant. There is always some manual handling component to the work practice.

It is good but not good enough to describe the manual handling component of the work as "use proper manual handling procedures in completing this task" or "stay within the Backsafe Safety Zone© when completing this task." What is required is a full description of the manual handling component of the task. This detail makes for a SOP and avoids injury.

The Backsafe Team is equipped to review your work processes and to make adjustments and improvements to increase productivity and reduce the adverse effects of getting the job done. Our mantra is "Get the job done safely" for today the challenges are plenty and ensuring the best ergonomic principles are applied will benefit any job.

Proper training in the use of existing and particularly new equipment is vital to maintaining health and safety on any work site. Picking the right tool, trolley, hoist or conveyor and having all stakeholders agree results in work processes that are bio-mechanically and ergonomically sound.
