What do a heavy duty crane and a precision scale for weighing medication have in common? Quite simply, the technical documentation is created by the technical writers at 2W. As a full service provider for technical communication, we have been explaining specialised, complex matters clearly and comprehensibly since 1998. Our technical writers have practical experience and are well acquainted with the myriad processes and needs of our customers. They combine a clear methodology with established didactic knowledge. The result: Technical documentation that leaves no question unanswered. Always true to our motto: Theoretical. Practical. Technical.

Risk and hazard assessments

Risk assessments
Risks can be avoided when you entrust the preparation of a legally compliant risk assessment to the specialists at 2W. We can even assist you during product development to identify and assess potential risks, provide valuable expert input, corrections and optimisations. Working closely with your design engineers and project managers, our risk assessments follow a standardised process that guarantees objectivity, is resource-efficient and ensures the legal security and market compliance of your products. The fast and cost-effective way to safety – for you and your company.
In addition to risk assessments according to DIN EN ISO 12100 we also offer research on directives and applicable A, B and C standards.

Hazard assessments
Good to know: The increasing sensitivity on the part of legislators to avoiding and reducing risks at the workplace will continue to present additional challenges to companies in all industries in the immediate future. The necessity to prepare professional hazard assessments is becoming an operational responsibility of the employer. Therefore we are training our employees today in order to provide you with optimum support in the future.

Usability testing

The mandatory components of technical documentation are specified by the legislature. But do they meet your expectations in terms of quality and practical usability? In cooperation with the Munich University of Applied Sciences, we perform usability evaluations for you in order to find out more about the user friendliness and application of your technical documentation. Using the latest scientific methods and techniques, such as eye tracking, we study how target groups use your technical documentation in typical use cases.
