Author(s):

Abstract:
Ergonomics is the scientific study of relationship between human and his/her working environment. A study was conducted on the ergonomic evaluation of hand operated linseed thresher. Anthropometric data of age group operators of (20-23, 24-27, 28-31 and 32-35 years) were determined. Heart rate, oxygen consumption rate, energy expenditure rate and body part discomfort score of age groups were determined during working on linseed thresher at different weight sample of linseed. Anthropometric data of stature, arm length, standing eye height, knee height, elbow height and body mass index were determined for different age groups. Heart rate, oxygen consumption rate, energy expenditure rate and body part discomfort score were increasing when age groups increased at weight sample (1.0, 1.5 & 2.0 kg). Heart rate, oxygen consumption rate, energy expenditure rate and body part discomfort score of 20-23 yrs age groups were found minimum and varied from 90-106 b/min, 0.34-0.52 l/min, 7.08-11.03 kJ/min and 20.16-25.58 respectively on working. Heart rate, oxygen consumption rate, energy expenditure rate and body part discomfort score of 32-35yrs age groups were found maximum and varied from 120-135 b/min, 0.68-0.84 l/min, 14.23-17.67 kJ/min and 44.82-58.07 respectively during working operators on linseed thresher at different weight samples.
