Title Occupational physiology and safety in galvanising
Original title Arbeitsphysiologische und sicherheitstechnische Analyse der Arbeit an Zinkbädern [in German]
Bibliographic information May-June 1973, Vol.18, No.3, p.131-133. Illus.
Abstract An analysis of anthropometric data and the various postures adopted around galvanisation vats was conducted with the following findings: work around vats not fitted with railings is hazardous; raised edges do not eliminate the hazard of falling. A railing 105 cm high is the only effective protection; it also provides support for both arms and tools.
