Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA)-Work Posture and Repetitive Movements

Hazard

Sprains and strains can result from awkward work postures, such as bending down, reaching overhead, or twisting while handling items. Repetitive-motion tasks can also cause sprains and strains — for example, packing bottles or cans, palletizing cases, and moving kegs.

Risk control

Minimize or reduce the risk of injury by practicing the following technical and informative guidelines:

  • Set up workplace workstations to minimize reduce awkward work postures. For example, palletizing platforms should have adjustable heights so workers can work at different heights and avoid bending over when lifting boxes or cases.
  • Implement task rotation so workers perform various tasks throughout the day.
  • Include breaks and stretch periods in the work schedule to allow workers to recover.
  • Use safe lifting techniques.
