Manual Extraction and Wrapping Station in Forest Nurseries

Developed by: WorkSafe BC

Description: A two-page information sheet on ways to reduce musculoskeletal disorders for forestry nursery workers who extract plants from a pallet and bundle them on an assembly line. The resource briefly describes musculoskeletal disorders (called MSIs in the resource) and presents three general solutions: minimize forceful exertions, adjust your workstation, and work from a position of strength. There are specific recommendations for workers and employers with picture references under these general guidelines for packing station workers.

This is one of four resources this developer has for specific workstations in forestry nurseries.

Keywords: Forestry, nursery, grab, handling, tree, plant, outdoors, solutions, recommendations, bending, reaching, organization, tasks, prevention, hazard
