Abstract Share this page

The research focuses on determination of the workload and work strain in small and medium-sized metalworking enterprises of Latvia. A number of studies in the world prove that the effectiveness of an organisation is closely related to a human, performer of the work, whose skills and health affect the results of the organisation's activity. This research, by applying ergonomics load evaluation methods, showed that extensive workload and work strain in metalworking enterprises has a negative impact on workers' wellbeing and health. The economics effectiveness calculations confirmed that the investments in ergonomics in metalworking manufacturing processes maintain human resources and are economically favourable in ensuring enterprise effectiveness, but further studies are necessary to evaluate workers' contribution and willingness to participate in ergonomics interventions.
