RAMP - Risk management Assessment tool for Manual handling Proactively


About the RAMP MOOCs

The three RAMP MOOCs year 2020 runs end September 30, 2020. From mid October 2020 KTH no longer has an agreement with the edX platform. We are working on finding ways on how to provide the RAMP MOOCs from 2021. We will post news about this here on the RAMP website, likely towards the end of 2020.


RAMP is a tool to support the assessment and management of Musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) risks in manual handling jobs. It is research based and has been developed in Sweden, in close co-operation between researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and practitioners at companies in a project financed mainly by AFA Insurance and the participating companies.

RAMP consists of four modules:

  • The checklist-based RAMP I for screening of MSD risks
  • RAMP II which enables a more in depth analysis
  • The Results module for presenting, visualising and communicating the results
  • The Action module, supporting the development of risk reducing measures and systematic risk management

A digitalized version of the RAMP tool is available for download free of charge from this homepage. The different programs and their contents are described below.

Note! Excel 2010 or newer versions of Excel is needed for using the RAMP tool.
