Using the “TMS PRO” participatory approach to reduce musculoskeletal disorders for packaging line operators in agribusinessKeywords:
Packaging line operators are susceptible to injuries and musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) because their work involves handling heavy loads, repetitive movements and awkward postures.
This case study looks at the collaboration of the Carsat occupational health and prevention organisation with factory management and employees to improve existing safety and health measures for line operators at an agribusiness packaging factory in France. The participatory approach involved affected workers in analysing risks and assessing prevention measures.
The successful intervention also enabled the factory to continue running its prevention policy without outside help.
