KTH’s open-for-all RAMP online courses run between February 13 and June 5 2024
We have adapted the popular, fully online, training package on the RAMP tool to a digital platform hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The three courses (in English) will run between February 13 and June 5, 2024. You will find information on how to register here February 5, 2024, which also is the date when the registration opens
In these three courses, you will learn how to apply the whole risk management process, from risk identification and risk assessment, to concrete action plans and follow-ups. These courses are taken online, are self-paced and are free of charge. You can choose to study each course seperately. Everyone is welcome to register and no specific prerequisites are required.
In RAMP Course 1: Assessment of Work-Related Injury Risks using RAMP I, you get an overview of the entire RAMP tool and you learn to identify and assess musculoskeletal (MSD) risks using the first module in the RAMP tool (RAMP I).
In RAMP Course 2: Risk Management of Work-Related Injuries using RAMP II, you learn to use all four modules in the RAMP tool. This includes, for example, how to present results from risk assessments for different stakeholders within an organisation and how you create action plans for improvement.
In RAMP Course 3: Proficiency in using RAMP for Risk Management of Work-Related Injuries, you practice using all four modules in the RAMP tool and you become skilled in managing the whole risk management process and you will work with authentic cases from the business community.
