Abstract

After their construction, buildings and structures will need maintenance. Statistics of occupational accidents demonstrate that many severe accidents occur during maintenance operations. Therefore a human-oriented design shall integrated maintenance issues. The design of work process and facilities integrate the elimination of hazards as well economical aspects. As example, equipment for the maintenance of a building is used; two solutions are compared. The permanent installation of rails is the best solution considering all factors including safety, ergonomics and economics. This approach shows that the best solutions eliminates or isolates the hazardous phenomena, reducing occupational safety and health risks and costs, and increase the productivity and the quality of the work. Occupational safety and health is only one of the sides of work and therefore the real solution of an OSH problem is done when the work is designed correctly from the beginning.
