Abstract:
Work related musculoskeletal disorders are a group of painful disorders of muscles, tendons and nerves. Work activities which are frequent and repetitive, with awkward postures cause these disorders. The present investigation is aimed to investigate the comfortability of work place layout among the women working in packing units of pharmaceutical industry. Workplace layout scale is developed to measure the user comfortability in terms of five parameters viz. work seat, work table, clearance, arm reach and posture. The results showed only 2.6 per cent respondents were satisfied with work place lay out. To improve workplace layout some ergonomic interventions were suggested.
