Applied Ergonomics Risk Assessment
Ergonomic risk factors are leading contributors to occupational injuries and illnesses in the form of workplace musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) and injuries from human error. Identification, assessment, and treatment of ergonomic risk factors should follow the established risk management process in ANSI/ASSP/ISO 31000 and 31010.
The Association of Gender, Book Bag Style, and Back Pain Among University Students
The purpose of this cross-sectional study is to identify risk factors associated with book bag carriage among college students and discuss strategies for prevention.
The Workplace Athlete
For decades, occupational safety and health professionals have sought to mitigate musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) through traditional ergonomic risk factor analysis and workstation design. Despite these efforts, MSDs continue to plague nearly all work environments.
Novel Noise Monitoring Prototypes to Measure the Impact of Two-way Radio Earpiece Noise
Current noise exposure measurement techniques fail to account for the noise emitted from a two-way radio earpiece and are impractical for highly variant and physically demanding work environments. Two novel prototypes were created to adapt a standard noise dosimeter for measuring noise levels when a two-way radio earpiece was used.
