Resumen An ergonomic methodology and its practical application in a shoe factory are described. 3 types of curing presses were considered: manual, semi-automatic and automatic. Tasks were analysed at each press type according to their environmental hygiene aspects (microclimate, noise, dust and vulcanisation fumes, lighting), according to their ergonomics (cardiac effort, posture, psychological factors) and according to their safety. Most aspects of work improved with the use of automatic and semi-automatic presses, but dust and vulcanisation fumes increased, and so did the number of burns.
