Forklift drivers kat kilang saya bekerja mengadu sakit pinggang. Dia orang minta kurangkan masa bekerja - dari 8 jam ke 4 jam. Selebih 4 jam tu, buat kerja ringan.

Somebody advised me to conduct the Whole Body Vibration (WBV) assessment before making any decision. Apekebenda tu? How to do it? What monitoring /measuring equipments to use? How much it costs? Is it necessary?

Pls. help. Thank you.

Terima kasih Sahabat;

Betul juga tuu. Dulu ada saorang OHD kat forum nih atas nama "Cendiaka..." or something like that. Ada sape tahu address email dia tak? Tak silap nya; nama dia Dr. Aini dari Sabah atau Sarawak kut?

Perkara pertama yang perlu dibuat ialah menjalankan body symptoms survey menggunakan borang kajiseldidik nordic. Secara umum Forklift menyebabkan 'whole body vibration'.

Be very careful when suggesting something like this. Check with your company to see if they would like to spend that kind of money. Body vibration tests are very crucial and to be honest, unless it is of excess vibration, such as hand-held pile driver, there is no reason for conducting these tests. Do bear in mind, this will affect the manufacturer of the forklifts as well.

Firstly, find out what else are the forklift drivers doing. Are they manually lifting goods the wrong way? do they sit on the seats properly? etc.

Thank you for your kind response Dr. Aini. Amboii..lama sungguh tak masuk forum nii.

Nordic survey tu ape yee? Has it got to be conducted by OHD?

Also thanks to Noyze. Memang dia orang diarahkan buat kerja selain bawa forklifts. I'll shall check into it.

But then again; it is also good to know the intensity of the vibrations ( as measured ) generated by the forklift, isn't it? Unless it is too costly.

Nordic backache questionnaire tu satu alat untuk buat initial ergonomics survey. Sapa apa boleh guna questionnaire ini, dari situ nanti baru kita decide the next step.....
Terima kasih kerana masih ingat dengan saya, agak sibuk akhir akhir ini

Of course saya masih ingat...ingat Cendekia....ingat Dr. Aini. I have been following this forum since 2004. Masa tu, you did contribute tremendously for the benefits of forumers on ergonomics issues.

The moderator masa tu ( with due respect to our current moderator ) is Ir. Daud. He also imparts his knowledge on safety and health at place of work. I learnt a lot from him.

Kemundian kita ada Izrai ( Zailan ). A consistent active forumer..sampai laa ni. Sekarang ni lebih mantap. A scaffold/working at height specialist.

Tak lupa juga a few others namely Aliasman ( AO, Osama dan Aliasman orang yang sama ke? ). Dengar khabar our friend is an OSH management system expert.

Saya cuma pemerhati waktu tu. Nak masuk tumpang sekaki pun tak berani. Semuanya handal handal belaka. Waktu tu memang colourful and exciting. Banyak kes gaduh. Nak ajak bertumbuk pun ada. Semua gara -gara berselisih pendapat on OSH. Mujur ada moderator dan geng geng forumers yang boleh menyejukkan keadaan.hee...hee...hee.

Laa ni.. saya dah nak pencen... dah tak ade kerja..baru lee nak menyibuk sikit dalam forum ni.

Hello Brother;

Laa ni gotah mahai ooii. Malam malam pun ada orang noreh. Durian luruh pun dia orang buat tak tau aje. Kalu pagi motong gotah, petang hujan pun kena pi collect juga. Kalu tunggu esok; jawabnya tinggai mangkok aje. heheheh...

I have not joint your Organization ( the Norhtern Region Group ) yet. Depa kata kena ada recommendation dari ahli. Tak payah recommendation bole ke?
