# Lifting and Carrying Assessment

Can you help me understand this Environmental Science question?

Complete the ergonomic calculator for analyzing lifting operations to determine if the weight lifted is greater than the lifting limit. You should note the lifting limit in comparison to the weight lifted. Use the WISHA Lifting calculator (XLSM – Ergo-Plus).

After completing the assessment, upload a copy of your assessment and submit it for this assignment. The following information is provided for the case.

The product is brought into the trailers on a pallet via forklift. It is the job of the loader to depalletize the product and stack it within the trailer as the organization’s pallets remain at the facility. The employees load various pine-wood furniture products that are boxed. Product sizes can vary in shape and weights. The depalletizing job selected for the analysis, includes boxes that consist of short end panels for bunk bed units. The boxes measure 43” (l) x 38” (w) x 6” (h). The weight of each box is 37 pounds. Use the additional case information data to complete the assessment.

Case Information

 Information Measurement Width of item 38 inches Weight of load 37 lbs Starting load position (inches away from body) 13.5 inches* Ending load position 23 inches Starting load height 5 inches from ground Ending load height 49 inches Frequency 6 lifts per minute Duration >2 hours Body twisting angle 0 degrees @ origin 0 degrees @ destination Grip/Coupling Fair Distance carried 12 feet

*Horizontal distance between ankle and lifting object

13.5 inches = from ankle to midpoint of hands, which were held at differing locations on product. One at left corner, the other in the hand-hole in the box at 19”.

For this assignment, calculate the risk at the origin and the destination and upload the results of the highest calculated risk.
