Presented By: Tom Hinman, Safety Management Services Company
Repetitive motion and overexertion are the biggest risk factors facing American workers. Muscular Skeletal Disorders (MSDs) affect the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, ligaments, and tendons. Workers in the manufacturing industry can be exposed to risk factors, such as lifting heavy items, bending, reaching overhead, pushing and pulling heavy loads, working in awkward body postures, and performing the same or similar tasks repetitively. Work-related MSDs can be prevented. Ergonomics, or fitting a job to a person, helps to reduce muscle fatigue, increases productivity and reduces the number and severity of work-related MSDs.
