Description

Lifting and handling bricks is a highly repetitive task. It can also involve twisting, stooping or reaching upwards. The risk of injury increases with the weight of the block. This leaflet gives tips on how to handle heavy bricks ergonomically.

 

Beim Heben, Tragen und Umsetzen von Mauersteinen kommt es zu Haltungen und Bewegungen, die den Körper stark belasten und auf Dauer zu einer Überbeanspruchung führen können. Dieses Merkblatt gibt Tipps wie  großformatige Steine ergonomisch vermauert werden können.
