ZARGES. Ideas for improved ergonomics at the workplace.

If spines suffer, so does the economy.

The problems with and along the spine represent a mass problem. Not only are individuals affected but also the whole of society. Loss of working time, treatment costs, early retirement etc. cause considerable economic damage to companies and businesses, damage that can be considerably reduced by ergonomics at the workplace and ergonomic working materials.

Take responsibility – promote good health!

Bending down, kneeling, squatting, lying down or working upside down: the spines of employees, especially in trade and industry, are confronted with specific challenges on a daily basis. Those who focus on the physical health of their workers as well as the financial health of their company should make use of ergonomic resources. These help to reduce spine and musculoskeletal problems, and subsequently to reduce absenteeism. You benefit from well-trained, motivated employees while easily avoiding unnecessary, long-term costs.

A load of 50 kg places 900 kg of pressure onto the spinal discs.

Orthopaedic view of ergonomics

The spine has a supporting function and is not a joint. For this reason, the spinal column is stabilised by the back and core muscles which are designed to relieve the strain on joints and ligaments, but above all on spinal discs. Lifting heavy loads creates tension and pressure to the fibrous ring of the spinal discs. A load of 50 kg places 900 kg of pressure onto the spinal discs. Constant stress due to incorrect lifting leads to tearing of the ring and consequently to a herniated disc.

The spine as a work safety topic.

Work safety laws obliges employers to ensure the health and safety of the people in their company. This vital task is undertaken by specialists in work safety. They are trained to identify and assess early on stresses to the spine and joints of employees. It is primarily a matter of reducing stresses and thus maintaining the ability of employees to continue to work over the long term.

Prevention by using appropriate work tools and equipment.

To reduce spinal damage during working lives of employees, employers need to provide appropriate work tools and equipment. It has been proven that the pulling and pushing of loads relieves pressure on spinal discs. Therefore, loads should preferably be transported on wheels.
