Ergonomics of sheep handling equipment for shearing and crutching by John Culvenor( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The focus of the review was the assessment of safety and health issues associated with the use of the new technologies. The task of shearing and crutching is dramatically changed by the introduction of these types of equipment. Presently the use of handling devices for shearing is limited although several systems are emerging and some units are now commercially available as full working models. In summary, the project documentation includes: · Project Report · Design Guide · Checklists (extracted from the Design Guide) · Equipment Catalogue · A paper for publication has also been submitted to Applied Ergonomics (Culvenor, J & Williams, R. B︣iomechanical Analysis of the use of Sheep Handling Devices to assist with Shearing and Crutching')"--Preface
Breaking the safety barrier : engineering new paradigms in safety design by John Culvenor( )

1 edition published in 1997 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Occupational health and safety legislation in Australia and internationally is based on the safe place concept and the hierarchy of control. A safe place is best achieved at the design stage and consequently the education of engineers in safety has been a priority. There have been notable efforts at the integration of safety with engineering studies, and this should be an ongoing objective, however extensive integration is likely to be difficult at least in the short term. The challenge was to develop a supplemental, innovative way to improve the ability of engineers to develop safe place solutions. The hypothesis was that training in creative thinking would achieve this aim. The hierarchy of control methodology shares a strong relationship with creative thinking. Safe place thinking challenges assumptions in the same way that creative thinking seeks to escape dominant paradigms. For this reason creative thinking seems a natural aid to the safe place approach. This study tested the effect on safety design of a creative thinking program; de Bono’s six thinking hats method. Given a recognition that groups other than engineers impact on workplace design, a range of subjects were included; engineering students, technology students, industry safety advisers, and government safety advisers. In response to safety case studies, subjects were required to generate solutions and to prioritize potential solutions. Subjects worked on a range of problems, some individually and some in teams of three. Results show that training in creative thinking improved the generation of solutions to safety problems. As the number of solutions increased, the average quality of ideas was maintained, therefore the increased number of solutions was accompanied by a similar increase in good quality safe place solutions. The results also showed in some instances the training improved the prioritization of solutions according to the safe place methodology. The effects were of a similar magnitude for
