Entry Example Before ● Changing a roll of paper on press: Employees needs to lift a 90 lb. roll shaft from a hoist and carry it 15 feet to place shaft into a new roll of paper. ● Employee is in a “Butts up” posture, with “Wash Rag” and “Horizontal Distance” ● BEST = 30 High Job Hazard Score ● NIOSH Lifting Index= 2. 1 After ● A height adjustable cart was fabricated that utilizes the pre-existing roll track. This cart eliminates the need to lift or carry the roll shaft. Employee now lines the cart up and slides the shaft into the new roll. ● The cart eliminates “Butts Up”, “Wash Rag”, and “Horizontal distance” ● BEST= 7. 5 Low Job Hazard Score and a 75% reduction ● NIOSH Lifting Index = 0 and a 210%2014 Humantech, Inc. reduction. ©
2013 Entry: Automated Lifting & Lowering Device Before The operator has to change the liner rolls, carry them to the rack and lift them up by hand (shrugged shoulders/ power grip and radial deviation in hand wrists) • BEST: 34 / NIOSH: 3. 5 / Push & Pull Force: 88. 18 lb. • Incident history (2007 to 2009): 7 First Aid (crushed fingers & bruises) After An automated lifting & lowering device to handle the liner rolls was provided. Now, the operator doesn’t have to carry anything, eliminating all previous awkward postures. • BEST: 18 / NIOSH: 0 / Push & Pull: 0. 67 lb. • Ergo Risk Reduction 47 % • Productivity improved from 5 minutes to 3 minutes • Project Cost: $6, 384 • ROI = 0. 15 years © 2014 Humantech, Inc.
2013 Entry: Refilling Wax Bead Barrels Before After ● Picking up a 50 lb. bag of wax beads from a pallet and bringing it to a workstation to refill the barrel beads at least once a shift ● Operators now only have to push the near empty barrel to the Hitchiner designed wax bead filler to refill the barrel. ● “Twist & Shout” to pick up the bag and to dump the contents in the barrel ● No heavy lifting ● “Butts Up” to pick up the bag from the pallet ● Less waste from ripped bags spilling on the floor ● “Wash Rag” to pick up and hold the bead bag until you fill the barrel ● Using 150 bags / 7500 lbs. of material per week ● Using only 1 Gaylord box a week ● Sensor will shut feed off when barrel is full so activity can be left unattended © 2014 Humantech, Inc.
2013 Winner! Shipping & Receiving: Off-loading Fruit Before After Hands-Free Tool! No bending required! ● BEFORE BEST SCORE = 17. 6 ● AFTER BEST SCORE = 3. 2 ● To release fruit from incoming shipment, employee had to bend over and hold flaps open with a shovel (one-handed) to control the flow of fruit. At the same time, the employee had to use the free hand to knock latches open or jog the fruit in the bin. There is excessive force from the weight of the fruit. Employee was in this static posture up to 10 minutes at a time, 6 -10 times per day. ● The team designed a tool to hold flaps open; adjustable to control the flow. The tool was built in-house by the team members using spare pipe from the Maintenance dept. ● The tool allows for hands-free control of the fruit release – eliminating the need to hold static bent posture or manually push against the weight of the fruit. © 2014 Humantech, Inc.

SAMPLE: Call Center – Company X, Chicago Before After ● Call center employee uses Hungry Head postures while supporting the phone. Also, employee cannot type with one hand supporting the receiver; she must write order on notepad, then enter it into computer, doubling time on task. ● Provided employee with headset to eliminate Hungry Head posture and related neck fatigue. Also, reduced time on task by freeing both hands to allow employee to type order directly into computer. © 2014 Humantech, Inc.
