Assessment on Ergonomics Risk during Team Lifting
To ensure employee safety by Ergonomics principles and knowledge of the human body, this paper mainly addresses the issue of team lifting when changing the job holders of Motorized Duplex Tong Crane in a Hot Rolling Mill. This work also analyzes the ergonomic risk factors by the tools such as Rapid Entire Body Assessment tool (REBA) and Revised National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) lifting equation. Ergonomics hazard is evaluated by NIOSH hazard evaluation worksheet to minimize the hazard level. Based on the analysis it is found that suitable control measures can be provided for safe lifting.
