Expert scores for lifting from pallet to conveyor task

Risk Factors Score Reason
Load weight R = 6 Definite red as clearly in the R=6 category.
Possible solutions
Hand distance from lower back R = 6 Poor, not really to do with the environment but more poor lifting technique.
Possible solutions
Vertical lift R = 3 Lifting from floor level when taking from bottom layer of pallet
Possible solutions
Torso twisting/sideways bending R = 2 Lots of twisting and sideways bending
Possible solutions
Postural constraints A = 1 Slightly restricted between the conveyor, rear wall and pallet
Possible solutions
Grip on load A = 1 Fingers are clamped at 90º
Possible solutions
Floor surface G = 0 No problems
Other environmental factors None No problems
