Risk Management has become a taken-for-granted form of practice for manufacturing companies and in most cases a strategic for their success. The research goal is to define a multipath methodology that drives the analysts to find the proper ergonomics factors impacting on specific safety elements, how they relate to the workspace, the adopted tools, the overall production environment and to the workers’ job, how to quantitatively and qualitatively measure these factors and which VP tools and experimental set-ups could be used to conduct simulations. A case study is used to illustrate the methodology.
