Description

HARM is an instrument for determining the risk of arm, neck or shoulder complaints when performing tasks that predominately involve the use of the hands or arms. The method helps you: gain an insight into what health risks the work may entail; identify the most important risk factors associated with the work; determine which intervention measures are likely to have the most benefit (that is to say, whether they reduce the risk of injury).

 

De Hand Arm Risicobeoordelings Methode* is een methode om het risico op arm-, nek- of schouderklachten te bepalen bij hand-armtaken.

 

 

 

De methode helpt u:

 

 

 

inzicht te krijgen in de aanwezigheid van gezondheidsrisico’s in het werk;

 

vast te stellen wat de belangrijkste risicofactoren zijn;

 

na te gaan of maatregelen het gewenste effect hebben (d.w.z. vermindering van het risico).
