  1. A field methodology for the control of musculoskeletal injuries.

    Article - En anglais

    A methodology is presented for the evaluation of jobs prone to cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) and manual material handling (MMH) injuries, which combines various tested ergonomics methodologies into a single, coherent programme.

    This multi-step procedure is based upon the collection of quantitative data that are used to evaluate ergonomic changes with respect to biomechanical risk, perceived comfort, productivity and quality.

    A method for prioritizing changes, related to cost-benefit analysis, is proposed to guide the selection of ergonomic changes in order to maximize the potential for injury reduction under specified cost constraints.

    The ten-step methodology has been extensively applied in industry, leading to examples and a case study.
