Tool Box Talk Masonry Work Bending over at the Waist Can Increase Risk of MSI Mobile App
The Tool Box Talk Masonry Work Bending over at the Waist Can Increase Risk of MSI app opens a discussion about construction workers protecting from MSI when doing masonry work, specific when bending at the waist.
How does it work?
Masonry work requires a good deal of bending - picking up bricks, cutting masonry blocks on the ground, laying bricks - if these are done bending at the waist it can contribute to injury. This app describes several different options to help reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury from performing physically demanding tasks related to masonry work. For example, stacking blocks so that they can be picked up by the flange, using scaffolding with an adjustable height etc.
