Musculoskeletal Complaints in an Industry
Factors That Influence the Prevalence of Musculoskeletal Complaints Among Workers in Different Sectors of an Industry

The hypothesis of this study is that there will be a variety of factors influencing the musculoskeletal complaints among workers of different sectors.

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) account for more than 30% of occupational diseases in the world. In order to organize the strategic actions that will be developed for the prevention of MSDs, it is essential to analyze in advance the peculiar situations of the different sectors of a workplace. The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalence of musculoskeletal complaints among workers in a medium-sized industry by comparing its sectors and to investigate the influence of occupational and non-occupational factors in the increase of complaints.

The Nordic questionnaire was used to asses musculoskeletal symptoms as well as questionnaires about lifestyle and work-related conditions in 185 workers divided into three sectors of an industry (factory - microelectronics, office and logistics)
