Domenico is a 40 years old man who has been recognized with a disability of 75% as a result of injuries reported in two separate road accidents (1990, 2002), that led him to have the limb completely rigid. Since 2006 he has been working for a large freezers manufacturer as a welder. In this short presentation potential risks arising from the performance of this particular work are highlighted, as well as the suitable design solution making the workplace more secure and protected.
