POSTURAL ASSESSMENT OF PHYSICAL LOAD AND ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS

The physical load is a factor that influences directly and indirectly the job performance. The indiscriminate allocation of positions or occupations without considering the morpho-functional level and biomechanical requirements of each job is a frequent cause of musculoskeletal disorders in the work...

The indiscriminate allocation of positions or occupations without considering the morpho-functional level and biomechanical requirements of each job is a frequent cause of musculoskeletal disorders in the worker. The aim of this study was to evaluate the postural physical load at work as a determining factor in the development of musculoskeletal disorders. Methodology: Descriptive, correlational study, in 48 office workers of a poultry company. For the evaluation of the physical load the REBA (Rapid Entire Body Assessment) method was applied, while for assessing musculoskeletal symptoms we applied the Nordic questionnaire. Results: The 64% of workers showed a medium level of risk due to postural physical load and 50% had musculoskeletal symptoms. However, no statistically significant evidence between postural physical load in relation to musculoskeletal symptoms was found. Conclusions: Although the statistical evidence is not significant, it is necessary the intervention over the conditions to which it is exposed the office personnel in the poultry company. La carga física es un factor que influye directa e indirectamente en el desempeño laboral. La asignación indiscriminada de cargos u ocupaciones sin considerar el nivel morfofuncional y las exigencias biomecánicas de cada trabajo es causa frecuente del desarrollo de trastornos musculo-esqueléticos en el trabajador. El objetivo de este trabajo fue evaluar la carga física postural en el trabajo como factor determinante del desarrollo de trastornos musculoesqueleticos. Metodología: Estudio descriptivo, correlacional, en 48 trabajadores del área de despacho de una empresa avícola. Para la evaluación de la carga física postural se aplicó el método REBA (Rapid Entire Body Assessment), mientras que para evaluar la sintomatología osteomuscular se aplicó el cuestionario Nórdico. Resultados: el 64% de los trabajadores mostraron un nivel medio de riesgo debido a la carga física postural y el 50% presentaron sintomatología musculoesquelética. No obstante, no se encontraron evidencias estadísticamente significativas entre la carga física postural con relación a la sintomatología musculoesquelética. Conclusiones: Aunque la evidencia estadística no es significativa, se hace necesaria la intervención sobre las condiciones a que está expuesto el personal del área de despacho en la empresa avícola. 2016-09-01 2019-03-19T16:17:19Z 2019-03-19T16:17:19Z http://purl.org/coar/resource_type/c_6501 http://purl.org/coar/version/c_970fb48d4fbd8a85 https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/rc_salud_ocupa/article/view/4891 http://hdl.handle.net/10901/14921 spa https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/rc_salud_ocupa/article/view/4891/4174 Revistas - Ciencias de la Salud http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.5/co/ Atribución-NoComercial-SinDerivadas 2.5 Colombia application/pdf Universidad Libre Revista Colombiana de Salud Ocupacional; Vol 4 No 1 (2014): Revista Colombiana de Salud Ocupacional; 22-25 Revista Colombiana de Salud Ocupacional; Vol. 4 Núm. 1 (2014): Revista Colombiana de Salud Ocupacional; 22-25 2322-634X
