Gerresheimer Medical Systems: ergonomics is a success factor!

When re-planning or optimizing production facilities anywhere in the world at Gerresheimer Medical Systems (MDS), the issue of ergonomics plays a major role. Ranging from injection molding to assembling and checking operations and even packaging medical and pharmaceutical products like inhalers, insulin pens, components for needle-free injection systems, cuvettes and lancets, the Production Coordination Unit (PCU) looks after the complete production chain in terms of ergonomic calculations and implementation projects for all the production sites around the globe.

In the past, making materials available, working heights, handling paths, lighting and employee movements were primarily planned on the basis of previous experience. In the future, ergonomics and cost-effectiveness will be studied in tandem and the planning and ergonomic design of the working system will take place on the basis of objective data obtained with the help of MTM. The results from the pilot projects and the introduction of the relevant methodical and technical standards at Gerresheimer Medical Systems demonstrate that ergonomics is a success factor!
