  1. 1. On the Determination of Reactive Compounds in Aerosols

    University dissertation from Division of Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology, Department of Design Sciences Lund University

    Author : Mårten Spanne; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Environmental technology; industrial hygiene; isocyanates; particles; sampling; aerosols; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Abstract : Many sources of airborne contaminants have always been present in various work environments. With the development of thermosetting plastic systems, the use of reactive chemical compounds was greatly increased and thus also the risk of exposure to reactive and potentially hazardous compounds.

  2. 2. Ergonomic Workplace Design Analysis: Development of a practitioner's tool for enhanced productivity

    University dissertation from Division of Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology, Department of Design Sciences Lund University

    Author : Jonas Laring; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; musculoskeletal load analysis; prospective ergonomics; SAM; ErgoSAM; workplace design; MTM;

    Abstract : There is a lack of pragmatic methods to assess musculoskeletal load risks when planning for production when there is no human operator to observe that performs the tasks. Existing methods are generally either expensive computer manikin software that is complicated to learn and use, simple digital human models for static and episodic analysis best used by trained ergonomists or methods in need of full-scale prototypes for observation.

  4. 4. Towards increasing operator wellbeing and performance in complex assembly

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Sandra Mattsson; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Complex systems; assembly; operator wellbeing; performance; smart wearables;

    Abstract : This thesis provides insights on complex assembly issues and presents pragmatic models, methods, measurable parameters and prototypes that can be used to support operators in complex assembly. Assembly systems are complex partly because of a high degree of product variety and the strategy of having mass-customised products. READ MORE

  5. 5. Safety management on multi-employer worksites Responsibilities and power relations in the mining industry

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Magnus Nygren; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Arbetsvetenskap; Human Work Sciences;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is on the division of legal responsibilities for occupational safety management on multi-employer worksites in the mining industry. The empirical basis is a study conducted between 2013 and 2016 consisting of interviews and observations focusing on primarily managers, supervisors, coordinators and safety specialists from a Swedish mining company and a number of its contractors.
