This is limiting because more and more research is pointing to multiple causative risk factors leading to MSDs.

When a worker is exposed to MSD risk factors, they begin to fatigue. Over time, as fatigue continues to outrun recovery and the musculoskeletal imbalance persists, a musculoskeletal disorder develops. These risk factors can be broken up into two categories: So the root cause of MSDs is exposure to MSD risk factors — both work-related risk factors and individual-related risk factors.

The evaluation will tell us that ergonomic risk factors are present, the worker is at risk of developing a musculoskeletal imbalance and a musculoskeletal disorder is an imminent reality.

There are three primary ergonomic risk factors. Exposure to these workplace risk factors puts workers at a higher level of MSD risk. The strength of the associations reported in the various studies for specific risk factors after adjustments for other factors varies from modest to strong.

The largest increases in risk are generally observed in studies with a wide range of exposure conditions and careful observation or measurement of exposures. Human beings are multi-dimensional. Limiting ourselves to a singular cause of MSDs will limit our ability to create a prevention strategy that addresses the multi-dimensional worker.

Exposure to these individual risk factors puts workers at a higher level of MSD risk. Just like workplace risk factors, individual risk factors are common sense: Having a poor overall health profile puts them at greater risk of developing a musculoskeletal imbalance and eventually an MSD.

Traditionally, workplace health and safety programs have been compartmentalized.
