Abstract:
Like repetitive tasks, varied long-cycle tasks, which are a common work method in companies, are the cause of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). Professionals have tools that enable them to analyze short-cycle repetitive tasks, but this is not the case when they want to analyze varied tasks in order to prevent the MSDs that they may cause. The objective of this project is to produce a guide that will enable them to study such work situations using an ergonomic analysis process. Accessible to all interested individuals because the information is in easy-to-read form, this document will present the context for applying this process, will explain each of the steps in the work analysis, and will put the advantages and limitations of this approach in perspective.
