Manual material handling (MMH) work contributes to a large percentage of musculoskeletal disorders. Musculoskeletal disorders often involve strains and sprains to the lower back, shoulders, and upper limbs.
The human body is able to adapt to its surrounding when the job demand is greater than its ability to do so. However, the risk of developing injuries increases when the job demand is greater than the body’s ability. This leads to lower productivity levels.
What does the law say?
As per the Ergonomics Regulations, 2018, it is the duty of the employer to conduct a risk assessment for all tasks where an employee is exposed to ergonomic risks.
Our SMART Solutions
Scientific evidence shows that effective ergonomic interventions can lower the physical demands of work tasks, thereby lowering the incidence and severity of musculoskeletal injuries.
As per the Regulations, CSE is competent to conduct a full ergonomic assessment and has access to professional ergonomists.
Ergonomic assessments are required when companies remodel their work environments to increase the productivity of employees who may be adversely affected by poor lighting, uncomfortable furniture, or other factors.
Our SMART ergonomics assessment finds a balance between the employee and task by providing a work environment and system that is compatible with the employee’s needs, ability and limitations.
