ERGONOMIC INTERVENTIONS IN SHIPYARDS

Easy Fixes: Small Elevator

Hazard: Normally access to top of ship at the dock for both personnel and some material is by series of stairs placed alongside. The stairs can be physiologically stressful especially when carrying items in hand (see photos).

Solution: A small elevator installed alongside the ship allows for easy transport of personnel and material.
