Digital musculoskeletal (MSD) online assessment tools available
The assessment part of HSE’s digital MSD tools are now available to use free of charge.
The digital versions of the Manual Handling Assessment Charts (MAC), Risk Assessment of Pushing and Pulling (RAPP) and Assessment of Repetitive Tasks (ART) tools have been designed to simplify the process of completing each assessment.
They have a logical step-by-step approach and will save your assessors considerable time in populating the results manually.
Employers and safety representatives can use these tools to easily assess the risks posed by physical, strenuous activities. The assessor can then understand, interpret, categorise, and communicate the level of risk. You can access the tools by following the below links:
If you want to consolidate your assessments and analyse the results, a premium option of the tool is also available
