PFERDERGONOMICS

The focus is on people

Tough working conditions, rough applications and high physical demands characterize the world of tool users. Whether they work in a foundry or shipyards, at the workbench or outdoors: the working conditions, the multitude of applications and requirements make more and more demands of the professionals “at the tools”. The task of having to produce a perfect working result under extreme deadline pressure determines the day’s routine. With retirement starting later and later, people work for significantly longer than used to be the case.

This leads to changes in requirements of the tools used. Tool selection affects the working situation of the user and his complete working environment. It not only has a great influence on the most economical problem solution, it also has a major influence on the health, safety and comfort of the tool user.

PFERD ERGONOMICS
PFERD ERGONOMICS Noise is undesirable sound (e.g., machine noise, acoustic tones, explosion or impact noise, high-decibel music, irritating speech sound) that may give rise to hearing impairments or other damage to health. Noise-induced hearing loss tops the statistics for occupational disorders. Intense noise at the workplace may affect the hearing of workers.
PFERD ERGONOMICS Vibrations are mechanical oscillations which pose a hazard to human health when acting continuously on the hand-arm system (hand-arm vibrations) or on the entire body (whole-body vibrations). Vibrations may cause blood circulation problems, bone or joint disorders, neurological or muscular conditions, back pain, or damage to the spinal column.
PFERD ERGONOMICS Emissions affect the quality of the air within working rooms, which must more or less correspond to outside air. From a health point of view, the size of the dust particles is decisive in addition to the pollutant contents of the dust.
PFERD ERGONOMICS The term haptic perception (sense of feel) is used to describe a sensual perception by creatures that can perceive mechanical stimuli. Everyone knows that haptic perception, or feeling with the hands, places a special role in everyday life. It allows the brain to localize and evaluate touch, pressure and temperatures.
