ERGONOMIC INTERVENTIONS IN SHIPYARDS

Hazard: Wire welding units weigh about 30 pounds. Workers must carry the units to their work location causing stress on the back and arms.

Solution: Mounting the wire welding unit on a wheeled dolly or cart allows the worker to pull the unit to the worker location minimizing back and arm stress (see photo).
