The family business Sodiporc, which specialises in the manufacture of half-industrial and half-crafted charcuterie products, is committed to improving working conditions for its employees.

With the help of the Carsat, it has been able to double its efforts to prevent MSDs.

The company has worked on the ergonomics of cutting stations and a sausage production line, in order to limit restrictive movements and the clutter of work areas.

Some of the most arduous tasks were automated in order to limit the occurrence of musculoskeletal disorders

L’entreprise familiale Sodiporc, spécialisée dans la fabrication de produits de charcuterie mi-industrielle mi artisanale, s’engage auprès de ses salariés pour améliorer les conditions de travail.

L’aide de la Carsat a permis de mettre les bouchées doubles dans la prévention des TMS.

L’entreprise a travaillé sur l’ergonomie de postes de découpe et d’une ligne de fabrication de saucisses, afin de limiter les mouvements contraignants et l’encombrement des espaces de travail.

Certaines tâches parmi les plus pénibles ont été automatisées en vue de limiter l’apparition de troubles musculosquelettiques
