The Ergonomic Risk Factor Checklist (ERF Checklist) works best as a preliminary tool for observing a job to determine the risk factors present for that job. The checklist is designed to help you identify the combination of risk factors that pose the greatest risk and/or occur most frequently for workers in an industrial environment. The checklist is divided into three sections:
- risk factors for upper extremities
- risk factors for the back and lower extremities
- risk factors associated with manual materials handling.
