ERGONOMIC INTERVENTIONS IN SHIPYARDS

Easy Fixes: Green Netting

Hazard: Working inside blocks situated outside in the shipyard exposes workers to high environmental temperatures.

Solution: Green netting on poles (see photo) can be lowered to shade the blocks from direct exposure to sunlight reducing the ambient temperature for workers inside the block.
