Resumen The objective of this project was to better understand pushing and pulling forces that represent a high risk of manual handling injury and to develop a risk assessment chart for pushing and pulling operations. Psychophysical data were reviewed to develop a simple graph showing whole body pushing and pulling forces indicative of a high risk of injuries during two-hand manual handling tasks. An assessment chart was also produced for assessing pushing and pulling operations. Risk factors such as initial force, frequency, travel distance and hand height were selected for inclusion on the basis of the ergonomics literature and the ergonomics approach for assessing pushing and pulling operations in the field.
