Track: Risk Assessment and Occupational Health and Safety (OHS)
The pandemic has severely affected the way people do things. Necessary rules and regulations have been implemented to ensure the virus would not further spread. The logistics industry is one of the sectors greatly affected by the pandemic since some industries are required to perform their respective work in a face-to-face setting. Meaning the workers have a high chance of being exposed to the virus. The study aims to identify whether workers from various logistics companies have experienced any risks during the pandemic regarding the physical, chemical, ergonomic, and biological extent. Moreover, surveying 250 logistics workers found that most have been experiencing ergonomic risk factors, which has made them perceive their health and safety risks as mild, given the current situation.
