Sturtevant, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/02/2016 -- Ergonomics must be systematically integrated into the daily functions of a workplace. This requires an understanding of how to gain the support of management and labor, how an ergonomics team should best interact with the work environment and the employees doing the work, and how medical and ergonomics professionals can assist in this process.
Working with Topper Industrial, customers have successfully implemented ergonomics processes into a wide range of industrial environments and used their experience to teach ergonomics teams how to maintain the process to continue its success.
Evaluations of tools and equipment used in manufacturing and production environments, determine impact on production, efficiency, and injury risk. Assessments of worker-job-equipment interaction to guide recommendations for improvements is part of lean manufacturing best-practices.
Far beyond industrial carts and fork truck free manufacturing plants, the importance of understanding body size differences (anthropometry) must be considered. Structure and muscle function of the back, hand/wrist, shoulder, and neck are taken into consideration along with basic biomechanical principles and how they apply to the major joints in the body.
Using several state-of-the-art ergonomics assessment tools including material handling ergonomics, Topper Industrial, and the new division, Topper Tube, help to set up and maintain an effective ergonomics process.
