Título Sustainable MSD prevention: Management for continuous improvement between prevention and production. Ergonomic intervention in two assembly line companies
Información bibliográfica July 2010, Vol.41, No.4, p.591-599. Illus. 34 ref.
Resumen To increase output and meet customers' needs, companies have turned to various production management systems whose aim is to accelerate decisions, react to environmental issues and to continuously improve production performance. At the same time, regulation and control systems focusing on work-related risks have obliged firms to implement safety and health management systems such as OHSAS 18001. The purpose of this type of system, also based on continuous improvement, is to reduce risks, facilitate work-related activities and identify solutions in terms of equipment and tools. However, the prevention actions introduced through safety and health systems often result in other unexpected and unwanted effects on production. Using the examples of two manufacturing environments, this article discusses how companies can benefit by implementing both types of management system.
