Development, implementation and dissemination of a tool for assessment of physical ergonomics and action processes (»Add to Infobox)

Research Leader: Linda Rose


Ergonomics

The project is a collaboration between KTH, Arla Foods, Scania and some smaller companies. The objective is to develop, implement and disseminate an IT- based assessment tool for evaluating jobs as to physical ergonomics and for providing a structure to find and take appropriate action when needed. Also the implementation process will be studied. The tool, that will be freely accessible, should be able to analyse manual work tasks such as warehouse work and hand picking work. One PhD student is employed for the project.
