Abstract:   (761 Views)
800x600 Background: Nowadays little attention is paid to effective preventive measures in offices in order to identify and alleviate musculoskeletal disorders. The aim of this study was to investigate and identify the musculoskeletal disorders among the employees of one of the governmental offices in Qazvin in 2011. Methods: This was a cross sectional descriptive and analytical study and the population under study were all of the employees of one of the governmental offices of Qazvin (119 people). Data was collected by the Body Map questionnaire and analysis was performed by the SPSS17 software. Results: The average age and work experience of the employees was 42.3±5.5 and 17.3±6.6 years respectively. The highest and lowest incidence of musculoskeletal disorders was in the neck and palms respectively. There was a significant statistical relation between employment years, weight, height, age and gender with some musculoskeletal disorders. But there was not a significant relationship between education level and job type with musculoskeletal disorders. Sitting, immobility and working with the computer had the highest prevalence among the predisposing factors of musculoskeletal disorders. Conclusion: Choosing the right individuals for occupations, applying work – rest periods, turnover, stretching exercises and sports, proper design of workstations and chairs based on ergonomic science, and under the supervision of occupational health, physical education and sport science experts, is recommended in order to prevent musculoskeletal disorders among the office employees.
