 Ergonomic Order Picking
Ergonomics is becoming an increasingly important factor in order picking and work environments. The National Institute for 
Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends a 51 pound maximum weight limit for lifting compact objects.

Maximum product density and pick efficiency are achieved by installing as many shelves as possible within 
the optimal pick zone and arranging items according to their pick frequency.

Picker efficiency improves when pickers are able to memorize slot locations. To facilitate this recall, we recommend using the same number of shelves per section, using the same number of slots per shelf, and identifying merchandise consistently and clearly.
