The Ergonomic Toolbox
The RULA quotation grid
The RULA grid is a method for evaluating upper limb postures. It highlights the risk of postures related to the observed work cycle. The final RULA score varies from 1 to 7.
The REBA quotation grid
The REBA grid is a whole body postural risk assessment method. It is based on the same scoring principle as RULA. The final REBA score varies from 1 to 15.
The NIOSH equation is an evaluation method for manual material handling tasks. The maximum permissible load can be calculated from the workstation parameters, with the lifting index indicating the level of risk.
OCRA is a repetition/stress evaluation method for the upper limbs. It allows the analysis of tasks that involve repetitive movements and/or stresses of the upper limbs.
The EAWS method is an evaluation method that combines aspects of posture, load handling and repetition. This method is used for proper organisation/work planning.
