Topics of this game:
  • Ergonomics is the science of designing the job to fit the worker
  • Musculoskeletal disorders, are injuries of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints) and nervous system.
  • Work-related MSDs occur when the physical capabilities of the worker do not match the physical requirements of the job.
  • Parts of the Body Affected by MSDs are:
  • MSD Risk Factors include: Force, Repetition, Awkward postures, Static postures, Contact stress, Vibration and Cold Temperatures
  • Manual material handling related MSDs affect workers in almost every occupation and industry.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, or CTS, affects the base of the neck.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome results from compression of the median nerve where it passes through the wrist into the hand
  • Ergonomic risk factors are best controlled during the design phase of a work process.
  • When manually lifting objects, it is best to keep the load close to the body and minimize twisting.
