Ergonomics Concerns (OHS) to Improve Productivity in Brick Industry

Dubey AD, Manish Verma and Ashish kr Khandelwal

A typical trait of our civilization is, since primitive time human being always try to reduce work load with the help of machines or manual devices. It is observed that machines can also not continue its working for very long without human intervention, if continue there might be chance of failure without maintenance. Work is done by man-machine system. Productivity is directly associated with 5 M’s namely man, machine, material, money and management . In this project emphasis has been given to improve the productivity in small scale industries i.e. brick industries . Ergonomics has taken as subsystem under which fatigue and safety is analyzed. Wrong postures gives different kind of problems muscular, ophthalmological and orthopedic cause reduction in productivity. With the provision of correct body posture and using different productivity models application of ergonomics reduces the absentia of workers and productivity can be improved in small scale industries. In this way we can improve the GDP of our country by providing attention towards ergonomics (OHS).
