ERGONOMICS IS EVERYWHERE
Sit up straight, move the monitor to your eye level, take a break, and stretch from time to time. Most of us know how to keep our bodies healthy while working in an office. But what does ergonomics look like for production workers? It is important to adapt the shape of parts to the capabilities of the human body, use handling equipment, and also to find a balance between activity and appropriate forms of rest. Lucie Vacková, professional coordinator from the Health Services and Ergonomics Department, shares her experience.
Even the slightest disturbing sound in a car can frighten the driver, with dangerous results. 💡 Car noise is more important than it might seem. Driving in a car that has its acoustics under control is both more pleasant and significantly safer. And how are acoustics measured? The car is brought into a spacious semi-anechoic chamber stuffed with a special material. Then the car starts, warms up, the rollers spin and noise is recorded and measured using microphones and artificial models of human heads. 📣 "We do tests in summer and winter, and cars are driven beyond the Arctic Circle or in great heat. At low temperatures, the damping materials change their properties and may cease to fulfill their purpose. For example, rubber will stop sealing and soundproofing when it hardens,” explains Filip Nováček, an expert in car acoustics.
