Abstracts
Described in the paper is the method for the assessment of manual work including repetitive tasks, occasional use of force, and improper body position. The method was developed based on an exhaustive and critical evaluation of literature on the subject, but also on the basis of our own studies conducted at a series of different work places. In addition to an objective description of tasks, repetitive movements, force and body positions, this method also provides the possibility of numerical computations of the listed activities, not ignoring their interactions.
Work demands (task duration in the course of a work shift, repetition of movements, use of force, body position and work conditions) are presented using a point system, with each demand shown on a separate scale corresponding to the actual conditions. In order to calculate the overall risk it is necessary to multiply the value on the task duration scale by the sum of the values on the other scales. The final value indicates potential overload shown as a number that can then be entered in a table illustrating one of the four risk levels: green, yellow, orange, or red.
Relevant literature states that the colour classification serves as an efficient help to the user in perceiving potential risk. This new method has been named SMART (Scoring Method for Assessment of Repetitive Tasks). So far it has been tested in 56 work places. The results show that 23% activities may be classified in the 'green' zone, 19% in 'yellow', 21% in 'orange' and 37% in 'red', thus leading to the conclusion that as much as 77% of assessed activities show increased load. The SMART method is still in the testing and validation stage as a tool for the assessment of statodynamic strains involved at different work places.
