What is the possibility to perform assessments according to ISO standards criteria?

There is the possibility to perform the assessment of workstations according to the technical criteria set out in the ISO standards, previously configuring the application to work in the ISO Mode.

The ISO Mode involves using the criteria included in the ISO 11228, ISO 9241, ISO 8995 and ISO 7730 series, and directly affects the following assessment modules:

  • MMH Lifting: ISO 11228-1
  • MMH Pushing and MMH Pulling: ISO 11228-2
  • OCRA: ISO 11228-3
  • Office: serie 9241, ISO 8995 and ISO 7730

The software includes criteria from the following particular standards:

  • ISO 11228-1 (2003). Ergonomics-Manual handling. Part 1: Lifting and carrying. International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
  • ISO 11228-2 (2007). Ergonomics-Manual handling. Part 2: Pushing and Pulling. International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
  • ISO 11228-3 (2007). Ergonomics-Manual handling. Part 3: Handling of low loads at high frequency. International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
  • ISO 9241-303 (2011) Ergonomics of human-system interaction -- Part 303: Requirements for electronic visual displays.
  • ISO 9241-4 (1998) Ergonomic requirements for office work with visual display terminals (VDTs) -- Part 4: Keyboard requirements.
  • ISO 9241-400 (2007) Ergonomics of human--system interaction -- Part 400: Principles and requirements for physical input devices.
  • ISO 9241-5 (1998) Ergonomic requirements for office work with visual display terminals (VDTs) -- Part 5: Workstation layout and postural requirements.
  • ISO 9241-6 (1999) Ergonomic requirements for office work with visual display terminals (VDTs) -- Part 6: Guidance on the work environment.
  • ISO 9241-9 (2000) Ergonomic requirements for office work with visual display terminals (VDTs) -- Part 9: Requirements for non-keyboard input devices.
  • ISO 8995 (2012) Lighting of work places -- Part 1: Indoor.
  • ISO 7730 (2005) Ergonomics of the thermal environment -- Analytical determination and interpretation of thermal comfort using calculation of the PMV and PPD indices and local thermal comfort criteria.

The ISO mode is intended for multinational companies that require the use of the technical criteria set out in the ISO standards listed above. However, the IBV, as a center of reference, advices you to take advantage of all the possibilities offered by the classic operation mode, with the most comprehensive methodologies to analyze the ergonomic risks in load handling tasks. To work in the classic mode, the ISO mode must be disabled.

For further information on the ISO Mode operation, see Chapter 3 of the user manual “Operation of the Application”, through Ergo/IBV application -> Help Menu -> Manual.
