Practical guidelines: ergonomic risk analysis
Back to MSDs and filter
These guidelines are the result of a consensus with ergonomics prevention advisors and are aimed at anyone who is involved with ergonomics or well-being at work in the broadest sense. This is the third “practical guidelines” publication by VerV, the two previous practical guidelines focused on office environments and healthcare work. They outline the specific elements of an ergonomic risk analysis on the one hand and the different actors involved on the other. Once the ergonomic risks of a task or function have been identified, it is important to assess them in terms of both quality and quantity. The risk analysis is not complete unless it also includes preventive measures and possible solutions. The aim of an ergonomic risk analysis is to reduce physical stress and to allow employees to perform at their best. Ergonomics, after all, is about working in a healthy and efficient manner.
