Topper Industrial, leader in the material handling equipment industry, shared a new report between NIOSH and the Canadian Centre of Research Expertise for the Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders (CRE-MSD), a detailed report about Observation-Based Posture Assessment: Review of Current Practice and Recommendations for Improvement was created.
The report helps practitioners assess working posture for the prevention and control of occupational musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Quantitative or semi-quantitative descriptions of posture are inputs to many job analysis tools applied in MSD prevention and control. Studies of the relationship between risk factors (such as posture, repetition, and force) and resulting MSD prevalence have used various approaches to characterizing working posture, including observation-based methods.
Posture classification by systematic observation of a worker is commonly used in research and by practitioners, such as ergonomists, industrial hygienists, and safety professionals, to help inform job design decisions and establish safe work limits to reduce MSD injury risk in the workplace.
