Current techniques for assessing physical exposure to workrelated musculoskeletal risks, with emphasis on posture-based methods


The Journal focuses on Musculoskeletal disorders, Risk factors Exposure assessment, and Posture; Interaction.Physical exposure to risks for potential work-related musculoskeletal injuries has been assessed using a variety of methods, including pen and paper based observation methods, videotaping and computer-aided analysis, direct or instrumental techniques, and various approaches to self-report assessment. These methods are critically reviewed in this paper. The applications of these techniques in ergonomic and epidemiologic studies are considered, and their advantages and shortcomings are highlighted. Finally, a strategy that considers both the ergonomics experts’ view and the practitioners’ needs for developing a practical exposure assessment tool is then discussed.
