Technical and organizational system solutions for deboning and their ergonomics implications
Jönköping University, School of Engineering, JTH, Industrial Engineering and Management. (Arbetsorganisation)

Abstract [en]

Industrial deboners’ work involve high risks of accidents and work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs). The objective with this paper is to compare the different main types of existing production systems in Swedish meat processing plants regarding ergonomics and the organizing of production. Data from twenty-seven interviews and visits to seven production sites was interactively analyzed by the author and five practitioners. The results show that all systems necessitated trade-offs between physical work load and factors like job content, skill requirements and individual control. It is concluded that significant improvements concerning ergonomics can be reached by carefully matching technology and organization.
