Ergonomic risk assessment tools

A person’s safety and health while working is important not only for the worker but also for the business or organization, on the principle that a happy and healthy worker works better.  Here are two resources that list tools to assess a variety of ergonomic factors at the work place:

Recommended Ergonomic Assessment Tools – this post is part of a series from Ergonomics Plus, with a list of U.S.-based assessment tools; includes an MSD Cost Calculator (see note below)

Risk assessment – a page from the U.K.’s Health and Safety Executive with a similar list of assessment tools

Note:  both of these sites mention MSD risk factors; MSD stands for musculoskeletal disorder.
