EMS & Associates were very proud to be associated with the preparation and publication of the recent Health & Safety Authority publication – “Ergonomics – Good Practice in the Irish Workplace” (2015) – and our client – MFP Plastics Ltd. – in preparing the case study of good ergonomic practice that we developed in-house following a Process Improvement Project(PIP).
MFP Plastics Limited manufactures a comprehensive range of PVCu drainage, roof-line and infrastructural duct products primarily for the Irish and UK markets. MFP is an ISO 9001 registered company and is part of Grafton Group PLC. MFP Plastics Limited was established in 1967 and is based at Lucan, County Dublin. The company operates from a large manufacturing and warehousing facility utilising the most up-to-date technology and equipment.
We aimed to reduce the number of lifting, twisting, turning and repetitive motions being carried out. Following an in-depth period of consultation we devised an engineering solution involving vacuum power lifters to reduce the impact on staff. The overall results have proven very successfully.
