Abstract

There are many activities performed in a repeated way and in a risk positions that cause fatigue and subsequently may origin musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). Although the disorders may appear as a consequence of an intense effort, its development is a multifactorial process, but it usually occurs because the prolonged exposure in certain positions or movements. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the cable manufacturing process with the Quick Exposure Check (QEC) assessment, in order to associate the work demands with fatigue. By a transversal design, 70 operators were studied in different operational activities in a production plant. A prevalent ratio (PR) of 31% back MSD was found. The low back pain is one of the most common condition that affects millions of people, it represents the first cause of temporary disability due to general illness. It is estimated that 80% of the population has suffered at some time during his life. The implementation of the evaluation system CCR was purposed in order to prevent ergonomics risk.
