Diseases column correspond to about 30 cases of retirement for each group of 100,000 beneficiaries of Social Security

Diseases of the spine are responsible for about 30 retirements for each group of 100,000 Social Security beneficiaries, besides being among the main causes of sick leave. Most affected are men, especially with advanced age. The way to raise a worker's weight and mass in relation to the object must be observed to avoid damage to the spine.

While some orthopedists recommend that a person should stand up to the equivalent of 50% of their weight, others prefer a less generic recommendation, which individualizes the human capacity to carry particular weight, according to their physical conditions and health general. There weighting these recommendations, with regard to women, as they are normally considered to be less physiologically formed to heavy tasks.

The Consolidation of Labor Laws (CLT) states that the employee can carry up to 60 kilograms (kg), but internationally NIOSH (National Institute for Health and Safety Ocupational), an international body which sets standards for the issue, determines the limit 25 kg in the performance of work tasks. This is the approach taken in European countries.

The president of the National Association of Occupational Medicine (ANAMT), Carlos Campos, who is a doctor and ergonomist, opines that "there is a set of conditions that must be observed" to assess the weight that a person must carry "without damaging the health ".

This includes, as the doctor explains, a number of situations related to the conditions of the person and the type of load: the time it will be used for its displacement, the effort will be made to remove it from where it is placed, and way that it will be conducted by hand, in addition to observation of details about the manipulation with the aid of equipment.

In addition, Carlos Campos says, "everything will depend on where the weight is, if the soil is, how far is the body of who will carry, as you will have to bend the spine to get it." According to him, the closer to the body weight is, the better for the comfort of those who will carry it. "For the expert, one must also take into account how long the task will take and how often will run throughout the day .

Currently, Moving in the House of Representatives a bill that reduces from 60 kg to 30 kg maximum load that a worker can load individually, by amending Article 198 of the Labor Code which deals with this limit. The 60 kg set by Brazilian legislation were adopted more than a century.
