Postures and movements

Static body postures must be assumed during almost any task. Wherever possible, these basic postures should lie within a range that is comfortable for the persons adopting them. Ideally, workers should be able to select their basic posture (e.g. sitting or standing) themselves. The machines should be designed to permit this, for example by the allowance of sufficient legroom for a task to be performed in a seated position. Extreme body movements (such as bending down to the ground) should also be avoided, particularly when frequent. Corresponding information can be found in EN 1005-4 and EN 1005-5.
