EAWS international: key users’ meeting in Milan in January 2017

The Head of the MTM Institute, Prof. Dr. Peter Kuhlang, provided information on the planned EAWS international key users’ meeting, known as EIKUM, on 20 January in Milan at the latest meeting of members of the EAWS user group in Darmstadt. The key issue at the meeting will be strategic aspects of further developing the international ergonomics assessment standard known as EAWS (Ergonomic Assessment Worksheet). Invitations are being sent to leading European corporations, which use EAWS and wish to and have to continue developing in line with the future requirements for European manufacturing industry. Among other things, this will involve increasing the efficiency of ergonomic assessment processes, the international and European ISO standards and comparing the requirements profile for a work station with the relevant employee’s ability to perform.

The meeting stems from an initiative by the Italian MTM Association. Prof. Kuhlang has taken over the responsibility for coordinating the German participants. You can respond to this by e-mail until 15 December 2016; please send a mail to Peter.Kuhlang [AT] dmtm [PUNKT] com">.
