2010 - Ergonomics at the Jeweler's Bench

0.00

How important is comfort at the jeweler's bench? Can something as basic as climate control or lighting affect the performance of a jeweler? These are only a few of the questions that will be answered in this paper on ergonomics and efficiency at the jeweler’s bench. We start by analyzing the bench jeweler's work environment and offer suggestions and solutions to improve its design. The structure of the bench and seating design are compared to jeweler anatomy and posture. Aids in organizing tools are covered as is a selection of specific tools that will lessen stress on the jeweler's body. Checklists and suggested improvements bring us to the conclusion and answer the question, "How can we improve workmanship, speed and efficiency by revamping the jeweler'rs bench?"
