||Guide-lines on ergonomic study in forestry
||ILO Publications, International Labour Office, 1211 Genève 22, Switzerland, 1989. 242p. Illus. Bibl.
||These guidelines were prepared for research workers in developing countries. The first section looks at human biological methods for research in ergonomics and covers: energy expenditure; physical working capacity; evaluation of heavy work, energy intake and expenditure; body size and muscular strength. The second section describes the design and application of an ergonomic checklist covering a range of conditions found in forestry. Section 3 on noise looks at effects of noise on humans, measurement and assessment of noise at work, noise control and audiometry. The fourth section describes the collection, compilation and analysis of statistics and other approaches to accident study. The final section provides a simple guide to work study methods for foresters.
