    Physical Loading

    Based on the knowledge you have acquired in (Basic Anatomy and Physiology), you now have an understanding of how the body’s locomotive. Structures allow movement and the handling of loads. In this chapter, we turn that anatomical and physiological knowledge into mechanical principles of loading, allowing you to identify, analyse and evaluate the greatest risks for physical injury in the workplace. One of the great strengths of engineering is the ability to make simplifications in order to calculate how much loading the body is under. If you have limit values available, biomechanical calculations can tell you whether a chosen task, in terms of posture, forces and time, will push the…

    WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW THIS AS AN ENGINEER?

      From a physical point of view, having a basic understanding of the human body’s strengths, abilities, and limitations is an important basis for making well thought-out tweaks to the design of the workplace, in order to build work systems that are not a risk to huma health or performance. Knowing how your muscles, bones and joints work may seem like a far cry from your engineering work, but it will significantly help your understanding in later  chapters where physical loading and methods of ergonomics evaluation are  discussed. Another thing this chapter does, is to provide a limited description of anatomy and  physiology; it will not go into as much…

    Different engineering roles act on different types of knowledge

    Engineers may end up playing a variety of different (sometimes overlapping) roles in their professional career. Each with their distinct scope, system level and operational concerns – some switch between several of these throughout their working life, depending on how specialized their working role is and at what system level they are. Expected to address problem solving. For example, an engineer may act on a specialized, operative level with responsibility for a single  production line, which would require specific methods and  knowledge to optimize for human well-being and performance.  Other engineers end up at a management level, where they are  perhaps not served by  anatomical knowledge  and ergonomics evaluation methods,…

    What is ergonomics/human factors?

    For many people, the word ergonomic is associated primarily with comfy office chairs, the correct labeled “ergonomic”, like kitchenware, backpacks or gardening tools. The word itself comes from the Greek roots ergon (work)and nomos (laws)androughlytranslatesto“th scienceofwork”,focusingonhumanactivity. The purpose of production ergonomics It can be assumed that anyone in charge of a production system would want all of its sub-components to function together with as much ease and efficiency as possible. When part of that production system is human, the performance of the system as a whole may vary depending on the daily form of the human workers. Although humans have great potential to bring flexibility, innovation and problem-solving skills to…

    Basic Anatomy and Physiology

    Our ability to work – in any way – is completely dependent on our physical health. When we feel unease, discomfort, pain or numbness, we may be able to ignore the body’s warning signals and still perform work, but the body will perform slower; with less power, quality and precision; with more errors; and at worst, resulting in serious accidents. A very real problem that is faced by all productio industry is when the limit has been passed for what a human body can tolerate, resulting in a worke needing to go on sick leave, i.e. be absent from work to recover from physical disability.  If the disability affects the…

    Movement

    When the different functional tissues of the locomotive system work together, the body generates movement. The study of human movement is known as kinesiology. There is some useful standard terminology that is used in medical science to describe different types of movement, in terms of directions and orientation. Most human movements consist of bending or twisting motions that change the joint angles between different body segments. Some movements are coupled, in the sense that pairs of muscles work against each other to “do and undo” each other’s respective movements (for example, bending and straightening the arm is, simply put, the work of two antagonistic muscles; the biceps and the triceps). The…

    WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW DISCIPLIN AREA ERGONOMICSS?

       Why do i need to know this as an engineer sometimes a bit of history goes a long way to explain why certain things in a discipline are considered important. For an engineer it may be good to know what the starting point was before any real thought was put into methodically improving the human aspects of production work. It will also help you understand why ergonomics covers so many areas and is such a diverse and complex discipline. The discipline of ergonomics is not nearly as old as medicine or even industrialization but it arose as a consequence of an extreme social situation: world war ii. With all…

    The Technological Environment

       The effect of modern technology are pervasive-both in business and in self behavior. In many part whole generation modern technology skipped over. For example many people go straight to a digital phone without ever having had their houses wired under the analog system. Even in a remote village such as in barrio, malasya –still lacking many traditional roads an-information highway is underway.  Advanced technology information well as other factors that are opening up borders- the opening of the berlin wall netscape workflow outsourcing, offshoring, open-sourcing, insourcing, supply-chaining in-forming- have converget to create a more level playing field. The result of this convergence was the creation of a global web-enabled…

    Reward

     Let us now consider briefly the basics of reward management. What is a reward a reward may be anything tangible or intangible that an organisation provides to its employees either intentionally or unintentionally in exchange for the employees potential or actual work contribution and to which employees as individuals attach a positive value as a satisfier of certain self-defined needs. On this definition rewards can be seen as including not only financial rewards i.e. pay remuneration or compensation but also rewards of a beneficial non-financial nature. Such a broad definition means that the options for configuring a reward management system are extremely wide. Such a definition also accords with what…

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

      This condition is caused by highly repetitive work in extreme positions, in combination with high force development. The median nerve, which runs through the space in the wrist called the carpal tunnel, gets pinched due to increased pressure. This leads to numbness, tingling, decreased function and weakness in the area around the nerve, and the fingers that are affected by the median nerve (the thumb and three middle fingers). Similar symptoms can be had for radial and ulnar nerves. Treatment of CTS depends on the severity, but non- surgical treatment usually includes wearing a supportive wrist splint to prevent the wrist from bending. Tendon inflammation is a condition where…
