ERGONOMIC DESIGN

If you require a properly designed, ergonomic workstation or work bench, then its critical that it is designed considering the following requirements.

  1. Correct Work Height
    An operator’s arms should be below shoulder level
    Precise tasks: 50mm below elbow
    Light assembly: 50 -100mm below elbow
    Heavy work: 100 - 200mm below elbow 
  2. Properly Adjust Work Equipment to the Task
    Adjust the workstation:
    Seat height and angle; footrest height and angle
    Adjust the work piece and parts containers:
    Work piece and parts containers in optimal positions (refer to points 3 and 4)
  3. Work Piece & Parts Container Layout
    Optimise container layout to reduce wasted motion and speed up throughput
    Heavy and/or most used parts should be placed in the closest containers
    Optimal container layout is within a 400mm radius, as measured from each shoulder
  4. Working Area
    Maximum grab area: 540mm radius, measured 160mm to the left and right from the
    centreline and front edge of the work top
    Optimum grab area: 280mm radius, measured 160mm to the left and right from the
    centreline and front edge of the work top
  5. Consider Fields of Vision
    Operators should view the work piece without turning head or eyes
    A 15° view angle requires no head or eye movement to grab parts
    A 35° view angle requires only eye movement to grab parts
    Viewing distance to a Monitor should be between 350mm and 750mm
  6. Match Light Intensity to the Work Task
    Standard assembly tasks: 500—750 lux
    Complex tasks (e.g. electrical assembly): 1000—1500 lux
    Delicate and/or critical work: 1500—2000 lux
  7. Do Not Work Above the Heart
    Keep all work below the heart to enhance blood circulation
    Reduce static holding during assembly as it increases muscle fatigue
