Las dolencias de una mala postura en el trabajo pueden derivar en lesiones graves | Ergonomia y Productividad | Scoop.it

Las dolencias propias de las malas posturas en el puesto laboral pueden desembocar en lesiones graves si no se actúa a tiempo, según ha señalado a Europa Press el director de Ergonomía de la Sociedad de Prevención de la Mutua de Accidentes de Trabajo y Enfermedades Profesionales de la Seguridad Social (Fremap), Carlos Tena.

Peter Zigmantas's curator insight, April 28, 2016 5:51 AM
In researching Risk management guidance that related to Ergonomics I found this document on the web. Although designed for Safety professionals with no formal qualifications in industrially developing countries I found that it is a great and simplistic source of information for multi-cultural workplaces. 

Keith is a highly intelligent person with a great working knowledge of his work environment including associated risks and hazards. As previously discussed in earlier scoops at one stage early in Keith's career he starting experiencing pain in his hands and sought out an ergonomic keyboard. 

The pain in Keith's hands resulted from working excessive hours for a very large extended period of time or a poorly designed keyboard not designed to be used for such long periods. Keith has obtained his knowledge of hazards within his workplace of working in his field in excess of then years. 

Prior to this Keith worked in very different work environment. It is important that workers understand Risk management and can identify risks and hazards and the importance of implementing controls to reduce the identified risk to an acceptable level. 

Workplaces can be a diverse environment of many ethnic groups. It is paramount that any education, training, polices or procedures etc. is understood by all. When Keith first started in his field he was studying in Japan. I am sure language was a barrier for him for a period of time. 

To this extent I feel documents as such in their simplistic nature are a great resource to aid the Safety professional in educating the workforce of such information by keeping the information simple and uncomplicated. 

The section that relates to Risk management can be found in Section 0.4 on page 28 of the document.

Sony have posted an informative video of Cinematographer David Leitner talking about shooting handheld documentary work with large sensor cameras – in particular the Sony F55/F5 and FS700. Speaking at theCine Gear Expo earlier in Los Angeles earlier in the year he gives insights based on his extensive knowledge of various handheld systems. The video is a little long but well worth watching all the way though if you are a real world shooter.

The Ergonomics of Tablets? | Ergonomia y Productividad | Scoop.it

"Have you ever heard about the ‘Gameboy back’? It’s the term that was developed after several studies on the positions of children when they are playing with their Gameboys. It turned out that children and youngsters with a keen passion for gaming developed a hunched back. When these kids don’t sit straight while using a mobile device for several hours, the muscles on their backs are underdeveloped because they don’t get the necessary support. Several others researchers have tried to warn the public about the risks of an unhealthy position."

Understanding hand tool ergonomics

Understanding hand tool ergonomics | Ergonomia y Productividad | Scoop.it
It’s important to exercise good ergonomics throughout the day. If you use hand tools as part of your job, keep the following in mind. The Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety states that, ideally, workers should be able to operate a hand tool with one hand, and that tools should feel “easy” to hold, with the center of gravity aligned with the center of their hand. Additionally, employees should select tools that allow them to keep their wrists straight. (Bend the tool, not the . . .

As I sit here tapping away at my keyboard, I'm flanked by a computer screen showing news feeds from the world of technology, another frantically tumbling away with Twitter updates, and another still that's telling me that yet another email has landed in my inbox. While I sometimes feel like I'm drowning in data, my woes are as nothing to those experienced by air traffic controllers, network administrators, operators in emergency response control rooms, and even busy stock traders. bRight from SRI International – the Californian research institute which originally developed the Siri virtual assistant – has been designed to make life a little easier for folks who need to make snap decisions in time critical situations, but are faced with an overwhelming amount of information flowing in all at once. In addition to offering task automation and data filtering, the system can predict the actions, behavior and needs of a user or group based on previous activity.

 

In 2007, Silicon Valley's SRI International formed Siri Inc. to commercialize a virtual personal assistant technology born out of the institute's DARPA-funded CALO (Cognitive Assistant that Learns and Organizes) artificial intelligence project. A free app for the iOS platform was subsequently launched as a public beta in early February 2010, and just a couple of months later, Apple acquired the company. Spin forward to October 2011, and a conversational search assistant called Siri was launched as a new feature for the iPhone 4S.

 

A little while later, Google premiered its own digital PA in Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). In addition to providing Siri-like search and assistance using natural language, Google Now delivered information and suggestions based on actions or decisions that the user had previously taken. SRI's latest project, bRight, progresses beyond both systems as an answer to what's been dubbed cognitive overload, where the tidal wave of information that can flood in during emergency situations can prove to be just too much to deal with effectively and, perhaps more importantly, rapidly.

Good Posture, Ergonomics and The Carpal Tunnel Solution Reduce the Risk of Injury

Salt Lake City, Utah – Carpal tunnel syndrome has the power to cause pain, interrupt sleep and inhibit the ability of the afflicted to work. That is why the right posture and convenient therapies that can be done at home are critical for stopping the development of this terrible condition.


The Aiken Standard reports that good posture affects one’s body in more ways than is typically expected. The body’s function is primarily controlled by the central nervous system, which is impacted by repetitive motions or the strains of rigorous work. It is especially important to protect the nerves in one’s wrist to prevent injury to the soft tissue and pinching of the Median Nerve in the Carpal Tunnel. Otherwise, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is likely to develop.


People that depend on their hands, which is most of us, need to utilize good ergonomics at their work stations, practice good posture and utilize an appropriate proactive therapy to treat and prevent injury. With all of the different contraptions on the market for wrist supports, it may seem difficult to choose the right product. Most of these devices immobilize the hand and wrist with rigid braces or wrist splints may help initially by eliminating movement, but in the long run these devices cause muscle atrophy and make this nerve disorder even worse. Not to mention the discomfort and restrictions in movement.


It is important to work with a trusted brand and reliable medical products supplier who guarantees their therapies and products. For this condition it is especially important to find a convenient home therapy because it almost always comes back even after Carpal Tunnel Surgery.


The good news is there are reliable therapies for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome that are offered by trusted medical suppliers. Neurologists call the Carpal Solution Therapy the best first line of defense for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Most patients call it a “Carpal Tunnel Cure.” It works for 97% of people with this hand wrist condition. It can be utilized at night during sleep to relieve your symptoms in the comfort of home. This is a home therapy that assures you get a good night of sleep and that you are able to work a full day without limitations.


The Carpal Tunnel Solution is a dynamic approach to consistently stretching the base of the hand around the Median Nerve during sleep. It provides relief of your worst symptoms within a few weeks and complete remission of the disorder within the Six Week Night Time Stretching Protocol. This medical protocol was developed by doctors working with patients who suffer with this frustrating hand condition. Also, after the six week protocol, most people find that their symptoms do not return for 2 to 7 years. Not bad for a comfortable night time stretching therapy.


Although some patients opt for surgery or spend thousands of dollars on gimmicks and ineffective fads, there is no reason to suffer worrying any longer. There is a reliable medical stretch tapping system that relieves pain, restores flexibility and blood circulation and protects against further injury.


The Carpal Tunnel Solution is clinically documented, FDA registered, developed by doctors, and used by over 50,000 people. It works for 97% of people in just a few weeks of treatment.


Product details are available from First Hand Medical via the following link: http://mycarpaltunnel.com


For further information from experts on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and this Carpal Tunnel Solution Home Remedy please phone 1 (800) 798-5210. You can also learn more about keeping the proper hand and wrist posture at work and good ergonomics.


Guarding against carpal tunnel syndrome is important for those that make a living with their hands. In the information age, that lists includes just about everybody. Call today to place an order and obtain the proper therapy for your hands.


Be Proactive about your hand health.

Ergonomics:  commonly people think that OHS dealing with people with physical or instant injures such as work accidents because of single event.

 

However Ergonomics is created for long term work related injuries, like sun explore, noisy explore, which are often overlooked, for example working at desk often because ergonomics such as back injury, neck injury, wrist injury, which are repeatedly work which I have to do every day.

 

So to prevent ergonomics injuries, we need to identify hazards, calculate the risk and then make action plan and finally review the action plan and to see how it works. Such as reminder on the computer to remind me to stand up and stretch my bank and arms, also to rest my eyes to reduce the risk of explore of risk of getting hand injury.
