Ergonomic Assessment of Manual Materials Handling Workers in Ceramic Factory Using REBA: An Observational Study
Abstract: A ceramic is an inorganic non-metallic solid made up of either metal or non-metal compounds that have been shaped and then hardened by heating to high temperatures. In general, they are hard, corrosion-resistant and brittle. Tiles are thin objects, usually square or rectangular in shape. Ceramic factory workers are involved in lifting, pulling, bending and making models. Most of their working task are subjective and requires repetitive movements and static postures in them leading to musculoskeletal disorders. Methodology: This study was done in 100 Ceramic works in Styline factory Morbi age of workers between 25 to 34 years. In that their working posture was evaluate by using REBA scale. Conclusion: The study concludes that almost all of the ceramic workers fall under moderate risk of musculoskeletal disorders and require intervention and awareness about postural correction exercises to prevent further musculoskeletal injuries.
