Alternative abstract Language
Field studies about physical demands in production sites of automotive industry as well as the potential age dependency of industry relevant physical capabilities of the persons employed there have been conducted. To date 159 workplaces and 106 male employees (age 20-63 years) have been analyzed/examined. The present results show the existence of age dependencies of several specific physical capabilities with significant practical relevance. Especially in manual materials handling and awkward body postures capability differences between the age groups have been found and these types of exposures are also the most frequently found ones in the sample of workplaces.English
