About the course

In this course, you will learn how to use the RAMP tool to identify and assess risks of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in manual handling at the workplace.

RAMP is a newly launched tool for assessment and handling of MSD risks in manual handling jobs. RAMP stands for Risk Assessment and Management tool for manual handling Proactively. The RAMP tool is unique in its high usability, developed and evaluated scientifically, in close collaboration between industry and researchers from KTH.

In this course, you will gain basic knowledge of MSD risk factors and injuries related to manual handling and their consequences for individuals, organisations and society. You will get an overview of the risk management tool RAMP and how each of the four modules should be applied. You will also get hands-on training in carrying out risk assessments with the RAMP I module and learn how to interpret the results, as well as how to proceed in the risk management process.

This course is the first of three courses in the Professional Certificateprogram where you become proficient in how to use the RAMP tool for systematic risk management of MSDs in manual handling jobs. The Program comprises of three courses that each will take 15-25 hours of work to complete. On successful completion of the whole Program you get a Professional Certificate as proof of your proficiency in using RAMP.
