    Checkout cashier work and counter design: Video movement analysis, musculoskeletal disorders and customer interaction2011In: International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics, ISSN 0169-8141, E-ISSN 1872-8219, Vol. 41, no 3, p. 201-207Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study was conducted in order to analyse checkout cashiers’ movements at a checkout counter during interaction with customers and the prevalence of work-related stress and musculoskeletal disorders in checkout cashiers. In one shop, six cashiers were videotaped during the workday, and 50 cashiers from seven shops from the same chain of stores responded a questionnaire. Cashier activities and movements, customer interaction and counter design issues were analysed from the video data. Prevalence of work-related stress and musculoskeletal disorders was obtained from the questionnaire. It was found that 76% of all items were manually turned or angled. With a better adjustment of the scanner and a standardised positioning of the EAN-code, many of these movements could be avoided. Furthermore the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders was quite high (68% for the neck). The questionnaire results showed that many cashiers experienced stress, giving a high percentage of cashiers in the “dedication under pressure” group. The behaviour of the customers was the major cause of stress. Other sources of stress arose from bad design or function of the computer system or other technical equipment.

    Relevance to industry: In this study several problems regarding cashier work were identified and solutions, relevant to counter and package designers, shop managers and cashiers are suggested. Data obtained on cashier movements and prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders are given.

    Ett produktionssystem under förändring: ergonomisk och teknisk utvärdering2005Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An evaluation of the impact of partial automation strategies on productivity and ergonomics at an electronics company was performed. This change included adoption of a serial line flow from a parallel batch flow strategy. The change process, which used both a project head group and a work organisation group, was also studied. The partial automation of assembly operations reduced the total repetitive assembly work at the system level and increased productivity. At the remaining assembly stations however, the repetitive assembly work increased due to the automation of the transportation functions and increased work-pace. The operators found the mental work load was higher in the new system. They also experienced the manual assembly station in the beginning of the line as the worst job in the system . Lack of management continuity at the department was identified as one of the largest process problems. The manager set his view on how the production and work environment goals should be met. Thus the manager set the work organisation without adopting the plan of work rotation that the work organisation group had presented. This contributed to dissatisfaction amongst the operators involved in the development process.

    Reversing mouse buttons reduces finger extensor muscle static load2007In: Proceedings of 39th Annual Congress of the Nordic Ergonomics Society, 2007Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes an evaluation of an alternative way to use an ordinary computer mouse. The function of the two mouse buttons were switched and the index finger operated the right button for normal clicking while the middle finger rested on the table directly to the right of the mouse. An electromyographic /EMG) evaluation of this alternative hand position in 29 subjects showed that the EMG activity in the extensor digitorum superficialis muscle was lower compared to a normal hand position both when the hand was resting on the mouse as well as during repeated clicking. All subjects showed a lower average EMG level during repeated clicking and 27 subjects reduced their activity when resting the hand on the mouse compared to a normal hand osition on the mouse.
