Abstract

This research investigates the relationship between working conditions and musculoskeletal/ergonomic disorders in a manufacturing facility. I believe that the biomechanical and psychosocial aspects of work have a significant influence on the individual worker's health and well-being. The work organization at which I have evaluated the employee's health and well-being and collected a large amount of data was at a large manufacturing facility. This research is based upon the Balance Theory Model of Smith & Carayon-Sainfort [1,2]. The overall purpose of this research study was to identify the stressful working conditions and control them. The overall aim of this research is to improve the long term health and well-being of workers in a manufacturing facility.
