Abstract [en]

This thesis has been carried out in cooperation with Burseryds Bruk AB.

Burseryds Bruk is a company that manufactures steel strapping. The thesis is

about developing a concept of protection that should be used to protect the

operators from the rotating parts of the machinery lines. The aim of the project

was to improve work safety for operators working at the machines by producing a

concept for a protective device.


The project's first part was based on ergonomic data collection methods to

understand the operations performed on the machine and the hazard occurring

during the process. The methods used to collect data were, interviews,

observations and questionnaires with the operators of the company. This was then

used to make the ergonomic analyzes hierarchical task analysis and link analysis.


The data collected from the company's operators was used create 10 concepts

which were then evaluated. The standard "General requirements for the design

and construction of fixed and movable guards" were examined at the concept

development process.


The selected protection tested and simulated in a modeled machine line where

Computer manikins used together with protection. The project ended with risk

analyzes on the developed protection with the help of simulations in the CAD

program Catia workbenches and a standard for risk analysis.
