In this weeks lesson, we will be reading chapters 12 and 13 in your book. We will cover manual materials handling and work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Consideration of materials handling is very important in discussing the fundamentals of ergonomics because just about all organizations in the manufacturing and construction sectors require employees to handle materials. As you are well aware, when it comes to handling materials of any sort, you are frequently required to bend, lift, twist, and reach. If these types of movements are conducted frequently and under load, they can cause a range of musculoskeletal disorders, which we will also consider in this unit. Assignment : Question 1 Explain the relationship between the L5-S1 vertebrae and how a bulging disc might affect the spinal nerve. Be very specific by using anatomical terminology. What strategies could you recommend to avoid these types of injuries? Your response should be 175 words. Question 2 Imagine that you are leading a training event to help prevent back injuries, and you are teaching students the proper way to lift. Describe, in detail, your recommended steps for lifting a box from a tabletop and placing the box on the floor in a way that would not create any pain or ergonomics issue(s).
