COMSA has actively collaborated in the launch of the ‘Banco de Experiencias Ergonómicas’, a web tool created by the Fundación Laboral de la Construcción, which aims to improve ergonomics in the construction sector. The ‘Banco de Experiencias Ergonómicas’, also aims to become a meeting place for all agents involved in Occupational Risk Prevention, by acting as a forum of information, communication and promotion of activities, services and products in the ergonomics risk prevention discipline..
The web tool includes information on the most commonly used manual tools and machinery, the ergonomic problems detected from this use and recommendations for the elimination or reduction of these problems. It also includes a specific section on good practice and occupational risk prevention experiences, all of which listed with examples of application.
The ‘Banco de Experiencias Ergonómicas’ has been created from projects on ergonomics in the construction sector, including the Guide to ergonomic verification of machinery-tools employed in the construction sector’, the ‘Construction ergonomics manual’ and ‘Ergonomics in the construction sector. Resources for trainers’, all of which are available and can be downloaded from www.lineaprevencion.com
