Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
You are required to develop a two-page written report, which must include each of the following elements:
A task description must address the work environment, work layout, tools, and equipment.
Include identification of musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) risk factors (you must include at least three risk factors) with a brief description of the risk factors, and use rapid entire body assessment [REBA], checklist presented in your Unit VII Lesson to evaluate the task. A copy of your completed assessment tool must be included with your report.
Provide the potential for an MSD injury (quantification of risk). Note that, the exact weight of the logs and the total amount of time devoted to complete the task are unknown. If you have a need to use any information not provided, please make arbitrary choices, and provide the reason why this information might be important for the risk’s assessment.
A brief discussion of potential MSD injuries that could result from exposure to the risk factors must be included.
Recommendations for controlling the risk factors associated with the task using the hierarchy of controls. You must include at least one of each of the controls—engineering control, administrative control, and personal protective equipment (PPE).
