Introduction

The QEC (Quick exposure Check) is used to evaluate the exposure level of a worker to MSD risks for the back, shoulders/arms, wrists/hands and neck.

Method

Step 1-Observation

The first step is to film the work cycle. Be careful to film several cycles of work in order to have a true vision of the different postures and the reality.

Step 2-Evaluation

The evaluation takes place in 2-times:

  • First of all, the person filmed, the operator, self-evaluates according to different criteria: weight of the load, vibrations…
  • The evaluator then judges the work according to different criteria.

Step 3 – Result and interpretation

Finally, with the help of different grids, the results obtained by the worker and the evaluator are crossed. This will allow us to identify a level of risk according to the following table:

We will prioritize deal with the high and middle risks. Then these elements will be weighted according to other criteria (level of vibrations…) which will allow to identify the actions necessary to improve the situation.
