||This report presents the results of an ergonomic evaluation of the physical workload during cable ducting work at an automotive components manufacturer. Work organization and the physical workload demands of various workstations were examined, work postures were recorded and the working environment (climatic conditions and lighting) was evaluated. Organizational and ergonomic measures are proposed for improving working conditions, in particular by designing the layout of workstations so that the elements to be handled are within the reach of workers and limit the demands on the arms, shoulders, neck and back, and by systematically shifting workers between workstations so as to limit monolateral movements.
