This study is an updated systematic review of papers published in the last 5 years on industrial back-support exoskeletons. The research questions were aimed at addressing the recent findings regarding objective (e.g. body loading, user performance) and subjective evaluations (e.g. user satisfaction), potential side effects, and methodological...

In collaborative robotic applications, human and robot have to work together during a whole shift for executing a sequence of jobs. The performance of the human robot team can be enhanced by scheduling the right tasks to the human and the robot. The scheduling should consider the task execution constraints, the variability in the task execution...

The changing labour market and unpredictability of careers necessitate employees to adopt non-traditional norms of career success and assess their career in terms of employability. We propose that employees could promote their employability specifically through engagement in challenging work experiences. High quality jobs provide employees with...

Low-back pain is the number one cause of disability in the world, with mechanical loading as one of the major risk factors. Exoskeletons have been introduced in the workplace to reduce low back loading. During static forward bending, exoskeletons have been shown to reduce back muscle activity by 10% to 40%. However, effects during dynamic...

Met deze rapportage willen we concreet handen en voeten geven aan leven lang ontwikkelen (en dan met name informeel leren) en tegelijkertijd bijdragen aan het creëren van innovatieve organisaties waarbij alle medewerkers betrokken zijn bij vernieuwing en verbetering. Daarvoor ontwikkelen we een integraal model op basis van relevante inzichten en...

Ongeveer 7,4 procent van de werkenden in Nederland combineert meerdere betaalde banen (multi-jobben). Er is echter weinig bekend over de samenhang tussen multi-jobben en werk- en inkomenszekerheid. Is het een goede strategie, of juist niet? Om dit te onderzoeken zijn de gegevens van 20 535 deelnemers aan de Nationale Enquête...

In bijna ieder bedrijf werken ze: medewerkers die geestelijk zijn afgehaakt. TNO-wetenschapper Jenny Huijs deed onderzoek naar dit 'mental pensioen' en de manieren om werkplezier en productiviteit te verbeteren. Soms kan roulerend voorzitterschap in vergaderingen al een verschil maken.

Social innovation within the workplace is called workplace innovation. Without workplace innovation, organisations cannot reap the benefits of digitalisation. Technology does not dictate work organisation and labour relations; there is ‘organisational choice’. Yet, there are a number of pitfalls.

Laagopgeleide uitzendkrachten vormen een kwetsbare groep op de arbeidsmarkt. Minimaal een startkwalificatie is vereist om aan te kunnen sluiten bij de eisen die werkgevers stellen en om duurzaam inzetbaar te kunnen blijven. Het stimuleren van informeel leren op de werkvloer lijkt goed aan te sluiten bij de leerbehoefte van laagopgeleiden en is...

With mechanical loading as the main risk factor for LBP in mind, exoskeletons are designed to reduce the load on the back by taking over a part of the required moment. The present study assessed the effect of a passive exoskeleton on back and abdominal muscle activation, hip and lumbar flexion and on the contribution of both the human and the...

Purpose This study examined who benefits most from a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)-based intervention that aims to enhance return to work (RTW) among employees who are absent due to common mental disorders (CMDs) (e.g., depression, anxiety, or adjustment disorder). We researched the influence of baseline work-related self-efficacy and...

Nieuwe geavanceerde technologieën, zoals Internet of Things (IoT), robotisering, nanotechnologie en 3D-printtechnieken, doen in steeds sterkere mate hun intrede in de industrie. De verwachting is dat technische beroepen daardoor aanzienlijk gaan veranderen en dat vraagt ook om andere competenties (kennis, vaardigheden en gedrag). Er ligt een...

Purpose. The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether insights into high reliability organizations (HROs) are useful for innovation management teams. HRO teams can keep failure to a minimum level due to high alertness and resilience. Project teams working on innovation management could benefit from HRO principles and thus reduce their...
