Keyword : ergonomics, forestry works, biomechanical model, compression force, forestry work, heart rates, load moment

The aim of ergonomics is to generate “optimal” conditions which are so well adapted to human characteristics, capabilities and desires that physical, mental and social well-being in achieved. Some Ergonomics Researche, Occupational Safety and Health Conditios of Forestry Community have been done to evaluate and improve of forestry work and worker in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. One of the studies is a biomechanical anlaysis of industrial forest plantation workers in East Kalimantan. The objectives of this study are to clarify physiological work loads and physical loads acting on the lumbar region of workers and to propose a safe work environment in tropical forestry operations. The research was conducted in the industrial forest plantations of East Kalimantan, Indonesia, in 1996. In this study, heart rates and the physical lumbar burden of industrial forest plantation workers were measured for three types of works, such as weeding, planting and path clearing. In addition, the load moment at the Ls/St and the disc compression force were calculated using low-back biomechanical models. As a result, compression forces at the Ls/S I disc during weeding, planting and path clearing were estimated and found to be below the Action Limit (AL) by National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). However, it was also found that some work posture types during path clearing by chain saw were sometimes above the AL.
