Abstract

Sustainability spread during the past few decades is affecting many logistics activities, among them also material handling activities within production and warehousing facilities. Apart from the pure environmental concerns, one should also pay attention to the economic and social part of sustainability. Ergonomic design of forklifts affects both productivity and operator’s health and well-being. In this paper we first present an overview of scientific research papers about ergonomics of forklifts, identifying lower back pain injuries as prevalent injury due to the non-ergonomic postures of forklift drivers. In the second part we illustrate some solutions of manufacturers addressing this problem. For the purpose of identifying opportunities of future research we developed schematic model of causes for most present injuries of forklift drivers.
