  1. A discomfort survey in a poultry-processing plant.

    Article - En anglais

    The relationship of musculoskeletal pain and discomfort due to awkward work postures, forces, static loading and over-use is widely accepted as an indicator of poor job design.

    A discomfort survey was conducted in a poultry-processing plant to help to prioritize areas for ergonomics intervention and to determine whether regions of discomfort relate to types of task performed.

    The survey form was basic, to accommodate illiteracy, and was administered to 699 employees.

    Demographic data and job information were recorded.

    The employee rated job satisfaction and overall discomfort, shaded areas of discomfort on a body diagram and rated the intensity of the discomfort for each area.

    The jobs were coded into four mutually exclusive categories: hand tool, hand manipulation, material handling and mixed task.
