Green Ergonomics: A Global Perspective on the Wind Energy Sector – Does Experience Matter?

July 8, 2020 | 12:00 – 1:00 pm EDT

Dr. Gemma Milligan, Bea Hildenbrand, and Dr. Joseph O’Halloran

The webinar will discuss the physical demands placed on service technicians, and in particular, the impact experience has when climbing ladders. Presenters will: introduce available industry good practice guidance including those regarding working at heights and manual handling (including torque and tensioning); discuss current research regarding the most physically demanding aspects of working as a service technician; and provide evidence that climbing experience can limit the exposure to poor technique and ultimately reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders.
