Title : Ergonomic assessment of loading the musculoskeletal system of workers in the geotextile production process
Key words : Ergonomy, musculoskeletal system, work station OWAS method
Summary :

It is estimated that in the European countries approx. 27% of people works for more than half time of their work in a tiresome position resulting in muscle pains, which may disturb coordination of the posture, which increases the risk and possibility of error during operation of the machine. The tests concerned estimation of the risk of the muscoskeletal system disorders of workers who operate on particular work stations, which constitute a technological line for production of geotextile. Moreover, an attempt to improve organization of work was made in order to minimize the impact of the unfavourable postural system of a man on his/her health. Using the "OWAS" method (Ovako Working Posture Analysis System) the size and structure of loading of the workers' musculoskeletal system was determined. It was reported that on all work stations, which constituted the subject of the research, the 1st category of evaluation, where loading with the statical work was average but acceptable, prevailed.
