System: The goal of EAWS is to predict, as accurately as possible, the risk for physical strain which can occur during planned activities. Such predictions can be made in the planning phase of production based on pre-established MTM analyses, as well as, in the production phase. Changes to the production plan can then be made to eliminate or reduce detrimental strains and lead to an improvement of the ergonomic design of any production system. In each phase the connection between ergonomic design quality, required assembly time, and financial expenses for the work design is immediately recognizable, thereby making possible a comprehensive, sustainable, and optimized design.
EAWS works toward this in the following subtasks:
- Prediction of detrimental physical strain while in the production planning phase
- Development of risk assessments to evaluate physical strains
- Evaluation of organizational design methods with regards to physical strain
Course: This course educates students about the ergonomic factors that affect productivity and employee well being. Techniques used in the evaluation and improvement of the work environment are reviewed. Successful candidates will receive Certificate of Completion in EAWS at the end of the course and will be eligible to apply for BlueCard® certification. Please contact MTM for a list of all BlueCard® certification requirements.
