A risk assessment using motion-capture technology to identify ergonomic risks was performed at F&F Ltd, a small family-run sweets factory in Hungary. The company planned and designed technical modifications for its production line based on ergonomic principles to improve occupational safety and health conditions and to reduce musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). The workers themselves and external experts contributed to finding solutions.
F&F Ltd is one of the winners of the 15th Healthy Workplaces Good Practice Awards competition recognising successful prevention and management of MSDs.
