Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Information about vibration injuries as a preventive measure is beneficial to society as well as the individual. As early as after a few years work with machines that vibrate can cause young sensitive persons to develop vibration injuries.
An evaluation has been done on a web page with focus on information about work related vibration injuries. As a part of the evaluation a user observation and interview study was performed with workers who worked in different occupations. The workers all used machine that vibrate as part of the work. A total of eleven workers participated in the study. Eleven workers were employed in the public sector and two workers were employed in the Industry. The participants were seven women, six of which worked as household technicians and one as attendant. Four men were also participants in the study, of which one was a forklift driver, two electricians and one technician. The participant’s activities on the web page and the interview afterwards were video recorded. A comparison study against an earlier prototype of the web page was conducted with the help of an occupational protocol.
The result was material for suggestions to modify the design of the web page and make the web page easier to use and more functional. It was also made clear from the result that the employer, labor union and safety representative also need a web page tailored to their responsibilities concerning vibration problem in the work environment.
