Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

Assembly tasks are most common in industrialized countries. Even in highly automated and mechanized branches like the automotive, the metal and electric industries, high and / or uniform load situations are common and result in high physical workload. In industrialized countries almost one third of the total sick leave is due to musculo-skeletal complaints and disorders, which might result from poor ergonomic design. In order to tackle that problem, the EAWS as a screening tool for physical workload was developed by the IAD, introduced to major European automotive OEMs and suppliers and tested in the field. The EAWS grants load points for unfavorable physical workload and due to the total score assigns a traffic light risk scheme to work situations. With respect to the actual state in science and ergonomic risk assessments, load points are granted for the “whole body” and the “upper limb” system. In the recent years the EAWS was checked for compliance with existing internationally accepted methods (NIOSH [42], OCRA [1], RULA [19], …) and legal European re-quirements as stated in the Framework (89/391/EEC [2]) and associated Individual (e.g. 90/269/EEC [3]) Directives as well as the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC [4]). Thus the EAWS was designed to support relevant CEN (EN 1005 series [10-13]) and ISO (ISO 11226 [15] and ISO 11228 series [16-18]) standards too. In the companies in-volved, the EAWS serves as an ergonomic screening tool at shop floor level as well as in the Tech centers. It links corrective and proactive ergonomics, points out ergonomic problems and offers design solutions to overcome them.
