Health & Safety
Musculoskeleta l injuries are too often seen as inevitable in construction, despite the fact that simple solutions are staring us in the face. EcoSpot makes a real contribution to reducing back injuries in construction, and like all the best health and safety innovations delivers increased productivity alongside reductions in injuries.

dorsaVi & ViSafe
The EcoSpot board is a new adjustable spot board for mortar allowing the bricklayer to have mortar at waist height, or indeed different heights as they build a wall. Vinci Construction had been using the EcoSpot boards at one site in Swansea and decided to work together with dorsaVi to understand the actual impact of using this new way of working. The ViSafe assessors recorded data from two bricklayers, alternatively using traditional spot boards and EcoSpot. The results speak for themselves:
Working with EcoSpot resulted in up to 85% reduction in time spent bending over 20 degrees;
Up to 84% reduction in low back muscle activity;
Reduced repetition of high risk movements by up to 70% and;
Created a 17% productivity gain.
