What is EZErgo?
EZErgo was developed by Ita Leyden, Consultant Ergonomist, to improve the process of ergonomic risk assessment using the evidence-based assessment tools developed by the UK HSE namely, MAC, RAPP and ART.
These tools enable an assessor to identify the key ergonomic risks associated with manual handling and repetitive activities in the workplace. In addition, the tools enable the assessor to determine on which specific risk factors prevention efforts should be focussed.
EZErgo was developed not only to simplify the recording and storage of MAC, RAPP and ART assessments, but to have a secure cloud-based platform which provided an assessment audit trail and data integrity.
Assessments made simple.
EZErgo has been built from the ground up to be as simple as possible to create easy to understand reports. It works on all modern devices with an internet connection without downloading or installing applications or programs.
Evidence based ergonomic tools
EZErgo allows you to easily complete ergonomic assessments using the HSA recommended evidence-based assessment tools developed by the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE) – MAC, ART and RAPP
Work smart & save time.
EZErgo has been proven to save time and effort in creating assessments & reports and has taken the stress out of ergonomic assessments for organisations already using the platform.

(Rapid Assessment of Pushing & Pulling)
The RAPP tool is designed to help assess the key risks in manual pushing and pulling operations involving whole-body effort, eg moving loaded trolleys or roll cages, or dragging, hauling, sliding or rolling loads.
(Manual Handling Assessment Charts)
The MAC tool was developed to help the user identify high-risk workplace manual handling activities and can be used to assess the risks posed by lifting, carrying and team manual handling activities.
