NOW AVAILABLE! In 2016 ACGIH® published a new TLV®: Upper Limb Localized Fatigue. The purpose of the TLV® is to provide employers and health and safety professionals with guidance for preventing upper extremity musculoskeletal fatigue among workers who perform cyclical work for two or more hours per day. The TLV® is based on combinations of force, exertion time and frequency that have been found to be acceptable for repetitive work. Exposure limits of job risk factors are presented that will allow most healthy workers to maintain their work capacity and normal performance for the duration of the workday without experiencing excessive, persistent fatigue. Deficits that occur during the workday should be reversibly resolved during the daily breaks from work, allowing for typical life activities beyond work. Excessive fatigue may be experienced as pain, decreased strength, localized discomfort, tremor or other symptoms or signs of reduced motor control. This webinar will present an introduction to localized fatigue, the scientific basis for the TLV®, methods of determining force patterns, application of the TLV® and several case studies that apply to the TLV®.
After viewing this webinar, you will:
- Understand aims and basis of the TLV®
- Understand the scientific data underpinning the TLV®
- Understand methods for measuring force patterns
- Be able to apply and interpret the TLV® to measured workloads
- Be able to make recommendations to employers based on the TLV®
This webinar is 1.0 hours in length and may be eligible for certification maintenance points.
