Ergonomic machine design in metalworking, checklist and evaluation sheet
Ergonomic machine design, checklist and evaluation sheet: In order to assess the ergonomic design of metalworking machines, the Woodworking and metalworking expert committee of the German Statutory Accident Insurance - DGUV has developed the "Ergonomic machine design, checklist and evaluation sheet". Containing a wealth of normative requirements, recommendations and explanations and reflecting the state of the art, the checklist serves as a tool during the design of new machinery and machine modifications. It is also a practical aid to users for the acceptance of machinery or machine modifications and for the risk assessment of existing machines. In addition, it can be helpful for determining the necessary protective measures to ensure the provision of safe and ergonomic work equipment.
