Ergonomic Risk Assessment Checklist Template
Use this ergonomic safety checklist to identify risks in the workplace and decrease work-related injuries and illnesses. Start with describing the work and attaching some photos of the workplace. Then, you can evaluate physical ergonomic features, check if walking surfaces and workstations are set up properly and inspect the labels of all your equipment. Finish the inspection with a decision, if there are any risks in the workplace and further recommendation. See our
