According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), ergonomic risk factors are present in work environments that require repetitive, forceful, or prolonged exertion of the worker's hands; frequent or heavy lifting; pushing, pulling, or carrying heavy objects; and prolonged awkward postures. Such factors lead to a higher probability of workers experiencing musculoskeletal problems.
