||Physical demands analysis of occupational tasks in neighbourhood pubs
||Sep. 2005, Vol.36, No.5, p.535-545. Illus. 30 ref.
||This case study of a neighbourhood pub in British Columbia, Canada, employing a total of 17 people, examines three common pub occupations: bartending, waitressing and cooking. The biomechanical loads of job tasks identified as physically demanding were determined for the three occupations analysed. The potential risk of musculoskeletal injury in these job tasks was assessed using four validated methods (RULA, NIOSH lifting equation, Shoaf pulling model and the 3D Static Strength prediction program). Musculoskeletal injury prevention measures are proposed.
