Feasibility of designed MMH technology for carrying agriculture produce using NIOSH Lifting Index
Agriculture is an occupation framed within the context of family and community. The farm family is the central entity in agricultural production involving every member be it children, women or the elderly. For more than a decade, farming has been rated as one of the most dangerous occupations in the developing countries. A considerable number of adverse health conditions, including musculoskeletal disorders, are linked to agricultural work. Occupational risk factors include static positioning, forward bending, heavy lifting and carrying, kneeling, and vibration.
