OBJECTIVE Compare the mechanical load on the low back and shoulders during pushing and pulling a two-wheeled container with the load during lifting and carrying the same amount of waste. BACKGROUND Only little is known about risk factors and mechanical loads during push/pull operations. DESIGN A complete 2(3) factor push/pull experiment. A two-wheeled container with 25 or 50 kg was pushed in front of and pulled behind the body by seven waste collectors. Further, the same subjects lifted and… CONTINUE READING
