Abstract Results of cinematographic studies of arduous work with a view to preventing accidents to the locomotor apparatus and improving the ergonomic features of drilling equipment: static load on the dorsal muscles, 71-277kg/cm; muscular force required to operate the band brake of the draw works, 30kg; etc. Methods recommended: controls of the draw works and the cathead actuating the drilling tongues, located in the immediate reach of the driller; control desks for the drilling machinery laid out for optimum visibility; satisfactory link between driller and monkey boy; limitation of brake lever rotation; reduction of the effort required to operate the brake lever to 5kg.
