The Modules

RAMP I - Checklist assessment

RAMP I is an assessment tool intended for screening of physical ergonomics risk factors when working with manual handling which may increase the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

RAMP II - In depth analysis

RAMP II is an assessment tool intended for in-depth assessment of physical ergonomics risk factors when working with manual handling which may increase the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

Results module - Display results at different level of scope and detail

The Results module can be used to display the results at different levels of detail and scope. Three levels of detail are available:

  1. Detailed, displaying results for each assessed risk factor
  2. Risk category, displaying the results for the seven risk categories
  3. Overview, displaying the results at the traffic light colour-code level.

Four levels of scope are possible: a single work station or a job, a department, a site, or a whole company.

The Results module is developed as a separate Excel-program, one for RAMP I and one for RAMP II. The results of a specific risk assessment at detailed level, are included in the RAMP I and RAMP II excel program, respectively, in the “Results” sheet.

Action module - Action model, Action suggestions & Action plans

The Action module is intended to support risk reducing measures. It consists of three parts:

  1. The Action model, which is intended to be used by the company as a structured support to systematically develop risk reducing measures. It can be printed and used at e.g. workshops to develop measures
  2. The Action suggestions, which automatically presents suggestions for measures to take to reduce those risks in a specific risk assessment which have been assessed as increased (yellow in RAMP II) or high (red in RAMP I and RAMP II)
  3. The Action plan, which can be used to plan, document and follow up risk reducing activities and thereby support systematic risk management.

The Action module is incorporated in the RAMP I and the RAMP II Excel programs, respectively, as three separate sheets: ”Action model”, “Action suggestions”, and “Action plan”.
