Consideration of Ergonomic principles in the design of Industrial environments can help to increase productivity and efficiency whilst reducing overall costs, sickness absence rates and the incidence of Manual Handling and musculoskeletal issues such as Work Related Upper Limb Disorders (WRULDS), Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI).
Hu-Tech has worked with many Industrial clients across a wide range of sectors to ensure that the physical layout of a space, equipment design and interfaces with the wider systems, meet with the operational requirements, Ergonomic and safety standards and industry best practice.
We have been part of client projects at the development and implementation stages, and also assessed and provided advice on aspects of systems that have already been introduced and are now causing difficulties to those that are required to use them.
Our principal services include:
- Rapid Entire Body Assessment (REBA),
- Assessment of Repetitive Tasks (ART),
- Manual Handling Assessment (MAC),
- Risk Assessment of Pushing and Pulling (RAPP).
