NCIA Committee Insights: Harvesting, Ergonomics of Trimming and Contracting
NCIA’s #IndustryEssentials webinars are our new weekly educational series featuring a variety of programs allowing us to provide you timely, engaging and essential education when you need it most. The NCIA Committee Insights series showcases content produced in partnership with one of our 15 member-led committees.
Harvesting is a laborious process. Even with machinery and thoughtful process engineering, the bulk of cannabis harvesting, including cutting down mature plants, hanging in drying rooms, and the artful hand trimming necessary for top-dollar bag appeal, are done by people.
For employees and owners, understanding the ergonomics of the harvesting and trimming process, from posture and Repetitive Motion Injuries (RMIs) to selecting the appropriately sized scissors, is an important aspect of People Health. The goal of ergonomics is to largely prevent musculoskeletal injuries and encourage higher, sustainable production efficiencies.
In this webinar, the NCIA’s Cultivation Committee takes on the art of trimming, with special guests from the Occupational and Physical Therapy industry, along with experts in commercial cultivation, on how they handle the final stages of cultivation.
