maximum handling load:
evaluation of the acceptability of a work
condition as a function of: 1.
The weight of the load 2.
The frequency of handling per minute 3.
The maximum load allowed at this frequency 4.
The distance to which the load is carried 5.
The duration per day (in minutes) Estimate of
1.
The total weight per minute 2.
The maximum total weight per min 3.
The total weight per hour 4.
The maximum total weight per hour 5.
The total weight per day 6.
The maximum total weight per day Judgment of the acceptability of the
work situation Program NIOSH: calculation of the index of lifting
according to NIOSH method Program STRAIN INDEX: This index was proposed by The index is evaluated from
estimates of ·
The force necessary to complete the
tasks ·
The duration of the efforts (in % of
the cycle time) ·
The number of efforts per minute ·
The postures adopted by the
wrists/hands ·
the work
speed ·
The work duration per day From this index and on the
basis of data presented by the authors, I propose the estimate of My
opinion: I find this index relatively easy to calculate and thus interesting
if a quantification is really necessary. |
