Abstract
The objective of this review paper has provided an outline of the range of methods that have been developed for the evaluation of Work-related body-part discomfort with respect of postures and movements to create a well-defined definition of ‘discomfort’ by a direct statistical investigation into subjective feelings of fatigues and pains. Relevant publications and material on Work-related body-part discomfort evaluation techniques have been collected for inclusion in this review and measure the scientific literature on observational techniques. The technique has been classified under two main headings: (1) self-evaluation of workers can be used to collect data on workplace exposure to physical factors by using methods that include worker interviews and questionnaires; (2) observational methods that may be further classified into macropostural, micropostural and activity of work- pastoral. As observational methods are more pervasive than self-rating -based techniques and can be utilized as a practical tool in the workplace, The basis for each classification is outlined and measured in assessing the severity, frequency, and duration of work-related physiological discomfort, and incorporates many of the key characteristics identified in this literature review.
