ERGONOMIC EVALUATION REPORT
Job/Position/Title: Concrete Quality Control Tester
Job Task: Air Testing
Date Assessment: February 6, 2018
- Conduct field testing of concrete and prepare and transport specimens of concrete according to industry standards.
- Perform and assist with concrete testing services such as testing concrete from delivery truck, making test cylinders, transporting test cylinders to lab for curing and testing, filling in break reports
The Tester may complete air quality testing 20 to 30 times per shift. This is variable and depends upon the size of the construction job as well as the number of jobs being completed at any given time. Three major contributing risk factors for work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSD's) include: 1) repetitive movement, 2) awkward postures and 3) force. In addition to these three primary risk factors, time, and/or duration of activity is also a significant consideration when looking at risk factors for MSD's
ASSESSMENT FINDINGS The Quick Exposure Checklist (QEC) was initially utilized for assessment purposes to quickly assist with generally identifying areas at risk of injury while completing the tasks of a Quality Control Tester. The following QEC results are noted:
- Back - Moderate to High Score (18)
- Neck - Moderate Score (10)
- Static Posture & Duration - Moderate Score (6)
- Neck - Moderate Score
- It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content.
- The REBA final score for this particular tasks was 6 which identifies a medium risk.
- SI score for the tasks associated with the position of a Quality Control Tester was 7.5, predicting that the specific tasks associated with the distal upper extremities may increase the risk of injury.
