DEMEGELIO, ROMUEN O. and FERRER, MARK ROLAND H. Workplace Ergonomic Risk Assessment on Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorder of Aluminum Frame Fabrication Process. Undergraduate Thesis. Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering. Cavite State University. Indang, Cavite. May 2017. Adviser: Engr. Willie C. Buclatin.
The study "Workplace Ergonomic Risk Assessment on Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorder of Aluminum Frame Fabrication Process" aims to determine risk assessment of the aluminum frame fabrication workers (n=53, 90.5% response) and the relationships between work setting and ergonomics risk factors to the body pans primarily affected by musculoskeletal disorders. The result of the statistical analysis showed that the neck, shoulder, upper and lower back, wrist and hands, hips and feet were affected by musculoskeletal disorders in the process of aluminum fabrication. These body parts were associated with different ergonomic factors based on Workplace Ergonomic Risk Assessment tool such as awkward posture, exposure to vibration, lifting heavy loads, changes in workplace temperature, and forceful movements and contributes to musculoskeletal disorders. The risk assessment of the study is low due to aluminum fabrication is not as hazardous as other metal fabrication like steel fabrication. Stretching the muscles before working is the best recommendation.
