Abstract

Forge smith’s have been the most important group and enjoyed utmost respect in the traditional rural setup. No agriculture and no rural industry could sustain without them. Despite being such an important part of the society their working condition is really poor it contain use of heavy tools and furnaces; which involve heat, noise, vibration, and dusty environments. Therefore, forge smith’s are especially prone to occupational health problems and experience more sickness absenteeism. This paper presents a study on various working postures of forging workers who are involved in different activities like hammering, striking and cooling. The study was conducted on 120 workers who are engaged in forging work. To determine the prevalence of self-reported musculoskeletal pain/discomfort body map and standardized NORDIC musculoskeletal questionnaire were used. The result revealed that forging workers were exposed to repetitive work for long time, and the occurrence of back pain and body ache was found very high among them Thus the workers are under high risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders which need to be taken care of through ergonomic intervention and medical treatment.

Key Words
