Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to evaluate an updated beta version of Ergo-Index, adigital tool for ergonomic risk assessments. The evaluation was performed with 15expert users who assessed type, distance, height and exposure time of certain worktasks, as well as the usability of the tool. In conclusion, the users find the presentstate of the Ergo-Index suitable as a first screening method. Assessments of liftingwork have the greatest inter-rater reliability. Further development of the digitalizedversion of the tool is needed to improve accuracy assessing input regardingpushing and pulling work tasks, and to increase usability.
