Choosing the correct ergonomic analysis tool prior to gathering data is just as important as choosing the right ergonomist. Too many times little thought goes into this key step. Choosing the wrong tool can lead to poor decisions and prove very costly.
Physical Demand v Risk Analysis:
Let Me Clear Up Some Confusion....
Physical demand analysis and ergonomic risk analysis use the same data from the job site but the data is presented very differently. Ergonomic risk analysis quantifies the risk of musculoskeletal injury. Physical demand analysis quantifies the physical demands of a job without quantifying the risk. Physical demand analysis are used for return-to-work, ADA compliance, hiring purposes.
