WRAP can be used to detect risks due to unfavourable working postures. The results of WRAP indicate whether such risks exist, and if so which working postures they are associated with.
The push and pull check (DUTCH) is a method to assess the physical load during push and pull tasks. The instrument is easy to apply, without the necessity of performing (force) measurements.
The Checklist Better behind your screens (BAS) can be used to assess risks while working behind screens (computer, laptop, tablet, etc.). The results indicate which results are present and how these risks can be tackled.
