Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

Though working in hi-tech industries, physical workload is partly considerable and cannot be avoided due to product and process requirements. Especially in automotive, aviation and marine industries, the assembly of the product geometry requires force exertions in ergonomically unfavorable conditions. Unfortunately internationally accepted methods for the evaluation of those force exertions are widely unknown. Besides some traditional German methods and EN 1005-3 hardly any evaluation methods exist. And even those methods refer to force exertions in primarily upright symmetric working postures. In order to overcome these problems the “Assembly Specific Fore Atlas” was created during the recent years. From a sample of automotive workers (n=273) a set of 54 whole body forces (6 main force directions while standing, sitting, kneeling; in an upward, bent and overhead posture) and a set of 38 types of finger-hand forces (all at MWC value) were measured in the field. The inputs for the types of force exertions required in practice were sampled from a consortium of major European car and truck companies. In addition, evaluation methods were developed that allow calculating maximum recommended force limits from the measured maximum static forces and task and user group relevant parameters. These methods were designed in a traditional as well as screening approach with respect to existing international examples. This contribution gives a short overview on the data collected and focuses on the evaluation methods realized and the results drawn from the first field tests.
