Expert scores for team handling container from table to pallet task

Risk Factors Score Reason

Load weight

R = 6

80 Kgs and 2 people
Possible solutions

Hand distance from lower back

G = 0

No problems

Vertical lift zones

A = 1

This is a little bit tricky, it is slightly above elbow height for the nearest worker therefore consider the worst case scenario.
Possible solutions

Torso twisting/ sideways bending

A = 1

This is tricky. Need to view the slow motion clip to see that the nearest worker sideways bends to control the load. This is due to the poor communication. Also, the worker at the near end of the tank is slightly twisting his upper body to see where the load is to be placed.
Possible solutions

Postural constraints

G = 0

No problems

Grip on load

A = 2

Some may say that is a good grip but consider A/2. The hands are stretched which could easily lead to hands slipping off.
Possible solutions

Floor surface

R = 3

Wet floor definite red.
Possible solutions

Carry distance

A = 1

Between 4 m and 10 m.
Possible solutions

Obstacles on route

G = 0

No obstacles

Communication, co-ordination and control

R = 3

This is a problem particularly when viewed in slow motion.
Possible solutions

Environmental factors

None

No problems
