Introduction to EAWS

EAWS - Ergonomic Assessment Work-Sheet

EAWS is the first level risk assessment method for biomechanical load development by an international team of experts and is constantly developing further. 

The method supports its users in the assessment of physical strain, in conducing risk analysis and the assessment of measures to improve the ergonomics - from planning and design to on-going construction.

 

It is a holistic system (full coverage of all risk areas) and it provides detailed results in four sections:

- Body Postures

- Action Forces

- Manual Materials Handling

- Upper Limbs
