Abstract:

The Level I Ergonomics Methodology Guide Supplement for Warehouse and Service Areas extends the applicability of previously developed United States Air Force USAF methodologies for the assessment and correction of ergonomic hazards to typical warehouse and service jobs. The Guide Supplement contains 20 case studies that describe risk factors for musculoskeletal disorders associated with warehouse and service work, and the control measures that can be used to eliminate or reduce these risk factors. The Guide Supplement is intended to be used by USAF Bioenvironmental Engineering technicians with minimal experience in ergonomics, to resolve potential ergonomic problems at their installations.
