Learn Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA) best practices with this online ergonomics training course.
Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA) Course
This diagnostic tool assesses biomechanical and postural load requirements of job tasks/demands on the neck, trunk and upper extremities. A single page form is used to evaluate required body posture, force, and repetition. Based on the evaluations, scores are entered for each body region in section A for the arm and wrist, and section B for the neck and trunk. After the data for each region is collected and scored, tables on the form are then used to compile the risk factor variables, generating a single score that represents the level of MSD risk.
Attend this online ergonomics training course to learn exactly how to perform ergonomic assessments using the RULA assessment tool.
