On the 9th of April, the Human Engineering research group from UMinho was represented by Ana Colim (left in the picture) at the VII Technical Workshop on Occupational Safety at AEVA (Associação para a Educação e Valorização da Região de Aveiro). His presentation was focused in an old subject, but always topical: Manual Materials Handling. She addressed the more relevant risk factors, as well as the risk assessment of WRMSDs.
Another member of the HErg, Francisco Silva (right in the picture), was also one of the speakers at the same event. He was representing his Technological Center for Ceramics and Glass (CTCV) and had a presentation on the risk of exposure to chemical agents.
