Abstract
A pre-intervention quantitative risk factor analysis was performed at various shops and locations within Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, a public shipyard that provides ship repair and ship dismantling services for the U.S. Navy. Five specific job tasks were identified for ergonomic analysis. These tasks include: the drydock sorting pad operation, the removal of insulation from vessels, the manual materials handling task in the "cut and carry" process, the use of reciprocating saws to separate components and hulls, and the removal of terrazzo tile with a chipping hammer. Possible engineering interventions to address the risk factors for each task are examined in this report.
