New Braking Technology for London Tube Creates Electricity

 

London’s Transport for London is testing a new system that can collect energy from trains braking. According to a spokesman of TfL, the new system should be able the power a large underground station two days a week.

How does this new regenerative braking technology work?

The new braking system converts kinetic energy into electricity. TfL set up a “inverter” near Cloudesely Road from where they send the created electricity to another station.

Up to 1 MWh off electric power can be collected per day,  according to TfL. In savings that means that London’s Tube will be able to cut up to 5% of its energy bill.

However, the system has another beneficial effect. The new brakes will be reducing the amount of heat that is normally generated by the trains braking. This means that it will require less energy to operate the Tube’s cooling system. It may even have a positive effect in the summertime, making commuting in London more tolerable on hot days!

What Is a Desk Assessment?

 

A desk assessment is a professional ergonomics assessment of a desk, work space or workstation. It  can be performed when a business or company wants to make sure that all their work spaces confirm to the latest ergonomic standards. This type of assessment will always be performed by professionals.

Two basic types of desk assessments

There are two types of desk assessments although the ultimate goal of both types of assessments is the same: to find where and how ergonomics can be improved

The first type of desk assessment is the on-site workstation assessment. In this case, the ergonomics professionals will inspect work stations and desks in person.

The other type of desk assessment is the online workstation assessment. This can be performed when there is a big number of work stations and desks that would make the on-site assessment impracticable. In this case, individual workers can log on to an online system to perform the assessment via a series of questions.

Why is a desk assessment the best option when you want your workstations ergonomic?

Proper ergonomics can encompass much more than using ergonomic office furniture such as an ergonomic chair or office desk. In addition to ergonomic office furniture there are other factors which can play a role. One of those “environmental factors” could be lighting conditions at the workspace or similar.

Due to those various factors, a complete and thorough desk assessment can only be performed by specialists in workplace ergonomics.
