Abstract [en]

Background

Manual handling work is regarded as one of the main causes to increased risks of developing Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Several MSD risk assessment tools have been developed, but have been found to have insufficiencies for managing MSD risks in manual handling. The RAMP tool (Risk Assessment and Management tool for Manual Handling – Proactively), was developed to support the whole process of risk management of MSD risks in manual handling: from identification and assessment of risks to developing risk reducing suggestions and systematic risk management.

 

What will you learn?

In this workshop you will learn how to use the RAMP tool by participating in applying the tool on an example.

 

RAMP consists of four parts:

-        The checklist based RAMP I for screening of MSD risks in manual handling,

-        RAMP II for a more in depth analysis of such risks,

-        The Action module to support development of risk reducing measures and support systematic risk management, and

-        The Results module, for communicating the results. It enables presentation of the results at different level of detail and scope, ranging from a work station to the whole company.

 

In the workshop you will get experience from using the four parts of the RAMP tool, based on a film-based example. Bring your laptop to download and use the RAMP tool on your computer!
