OBJECTIVES A cross-sectional study was conducted to assess the association of upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders and work-related factors among employees using video display terminals at a large metropolitan newspaper.
The study included 1050 randomly selected workers from four departments.
The workers were asked to complete questionnaires on symptoms, job tasks, and psychosocial and work organization conditions.
Musculoskeletal disorders of the upper extremities were defined by frequency, duration, and intensity of symptoms not attributable to acute injury.
Data were analyzed with the use of logistic regression.
