VERSION 22 – NEW FEATURES

Update of Ergo/IBV in accordance with ISO 11228-1 (2021). Ergonomics-Manual handling. Part 1: Lifting, lowering and carrying. International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

The standard affects the following modules:

 

Manual material handling:

mod_mmccargas

Single MMH

 

Multiple MMH

 

Variable MMH

 

Sequential MMH

To summarise, the standard introduces:

  •  A more detailed population classification, differentiating between Men and Women and introducing an “Age Group” variable which primarily affects the Loading Constant (LC).
  • A three-person operation factor.
  • The concept of Extended Time.

The amendments to the standard completely modify the ISO Mode, incorporating risk factors that it did not previously include ( i. e. two-person operation and one-handed operation) plus those listed above. It also introduces a new calculation formula for tasks involving transport.

This results in the following modules:

 

Manual material handling:

mod_mmccargas

Single MMH [ISO]

 

Multiple MMH [ISO]

 

Variable MMH [ISO]

 

Sequential MMH [ISO]
