Reducing frequency and repetition of movements

Where the frequency and repetition of movements is highlighted as a problem, the general principles are to:

Automation and mechanisation

Avoid machine pacing of the work

Automated and team working can all act to increase the work rate. Aim to allow people to control their own pace of work

Tools

Task design

Task enlargement

Consider adding extra activities to the task to provide more variety in posture and movement
