In many organizations the workers are suffered with Musculoskeletal disorders (abbreviation: MSD), Repetitive strain injury, Carpal tunnel syndrome. MSD is a term that refers to soft tissue injuries that occur gradually over time and can affect muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and nerves. Working for longer periods in a standing position can cause muscular fatigue, sore feet, and lower back pain. Physically demanding jobs such as heavy lifting, pulling, pushing, and moving of equipment in awkward postures may result in Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). In addition, the improper layout of work areas can cause irregular movements of workers which causes major health issues. Thus, the prime objective of this research is the Risk Assessment of Working Postures using Ergonomic Tools like Rapid Entire Body Assessment (REBA), and to make necessary changes in the workplace layout using work study techniques.

Keywords : Musculoskeletal Disorder, Repetitive Strain Injury, RULA, REBA, Work Study.
