Rheumatic complaints & musculoskeletal disorders in workers of a meat processing industry

  [ 24 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Krapac L, Sladoljev M, Sacer D, Sakic D • www.ProHealth.com • March 10, 1997


The effects of unsatisfactory microclimatic conditions and
forced body position on the occurrence of fatigue and pain at
work and disorders of the musculoskeletal system were
evaluated in 90 female workers employed in the meat processing
industry. The control group consisted of 95 workers whose work
did not involve repetitive operation patterns and took place
in a satisfactory microclimate. The mean age of both groups
was 35 years. The data on symptoms were collected through a
questionnaire. Further medical and functional examination of
the locomotor system was carried out in both groups. Compared
to the control, a significantly higher percentage of the
exposed workers complained of fatigue and pain during work and
manifested marked disorders. Most of degenerative rheumatic
diseases of the spine were diagnosed in both groups. Other
disorders found in the exposed workers in higher prevalence
than in the control were: extraarticular rheumatic diseases as
fibromyalgia, humeroscapular periarthritis, and epicondylitis.
This paper proposes primary and secondary prevention of
rheumatic diseases for workers in the meat processing
industry.
