Improving Manual Valve Operation Ergonomics
*Today's Featured Safety Forum Workshop (2 of 2)*
Presented by Ravi Jarecha (Paulsboro Refining Company)
Using injury trend analysis, manual valve operation was identified as a cause of injuries at the Refinery. A plan was then put into place to reduce the ergonomic risk factors – force, frequency and posture.
Participants will understand the value of data trend analysis, and implementation of engineering and administrative controls to reduce manual valve injuries.
This workshop will be held Tuesday, June 25, in Bossa Nova 3, from 2:15 – 3:45 pm
