Posture task analysis of two selected tasks of scan index operators

Abstract [en]

The main aim of this study was to analyse selected tasks of Scan Index Operators in terms of postural loading of the visual and biomechanical systems. An additional aim was to use two types of available postural assessment tools to record and screen the selected postures and to assess the influence of workstation design on posture. This study took the shape of a two-part study that would analyse the tasks and postures (recorded during the earlier study) using the Multi-media Video Task Analysis (MVTA) Programme and an assessment of the postural assessment tools. The pre-recorded video of the Scan Index Operators was viewed and major activities were identified in terms of visual and hand activities. This information was used in the development of the database for the recording of postures and other parameters. A sampling strategy (n=60) was developed to select the postures for analysis. Although all tasks that made up the Scan Index Work was coded, only the indexing task and the high speed scanning task were analysed due to time constraints and the nature of the recorded material. Comparisons were made between Participant A and C for the high speed scanning task where both participants performed this task at the same workstation. Comparisons were made within participants – for Participant B (sitting and standing) and for Participant C (with and without keyboard tray) for the indexing task.
