Ergonomics – Working From Home

During this pandemic, everything in our daily lives has undergone great change. We’ve been asked to go from working in offices equipped with work chairs and workstations, to working at home where our comfy couch or easy chair might be where we choose to work. During this disorienting time, when we pause to consider what hasn’t changed, it is, hopefully, our bodies.

“Industrial hygiene is the science of protecting and enhancing the health and safety of people at work and in their communities. Health and safety hazards cover a wide range of chemical, physical, biological and ergonomic stressors. Those dedicated to anticipating, recognizing, evaluating and controlling those hazards are known as Industrial Hygienists. They are professionals dedicated to the well-being of people – at work, at home and in the community.”

Understanding Additive Manufacturing Hazards

This Tech Talk provides a basic overview of 3D printing processes and hazards. Part 2 in this series will provide additional details on exposure assessment methods and results.

Additive manufacturing or “3D printing” is a set of technology platforms used to build 3D objects through the successive addition of material into the programmed shape. Metallic, ceramic, polymer, composite or other objects are made from 3D model data using printer parameters to deposit and join materials, usually layer by layer.
