Abstract
Keeping in view, the present scenario regarding Musculoskeletal Symptoms (MSSs) and Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) in many organized and unorganized sectors, the present study has been undertaken on bi-cycle garage workers. Through Standardized Nordic Questionnaire, the discomfort feeling in different body parts, pain sensation in different systems and pain feeling at different time of the day have been taken. Besides these parameters, physical and physiological parameters have also been taken of experimental as well as control subjects were also taken. Body postures during work were taken by three separate methods such as Ovako Working Posture Assessment System (OWAS), Rapid upper limb assessment (RULA) and Rapid Entire body assessment (REBA). Body weight as well as BMI and BSA in experimental group were significantly lower than control subjects. Headache, neck pain and lower back pain were significantly predominant among the experimental workers than control group. As per report of body posture analysis by OWAS, RULA and REBA; no major threat was found as per the development of MSDs are concerned. To reduce the impairment found in this study among experimental subjects; proper training, ergonomics awareness and implementation of work rest cycle may be recommended.
