Background: The revised National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) lifting equation (RNLE) is commonly used for risk assessment of manual handling, and can estimate low back pain (LBP) biomechanical stressors of lifting and/or lowering of loads. The aim of this study was to evaluate manual material handling by using the RNLE, LBP, and LBP disability index (LBPDI) among workers in a tile and ceramic industrial unit in Tehran, Iran.
Materials and Methods: A sample of 30 workers (manual workers) in a tile and ceramic production line was recruited. Low back pain prevalence and disability index were measured using body map questionnaire combined with visual analog scale and self-report Oswestry disability index (ODI), respectively. Statistical data analysis was done using SPSS software, version 22.
Results: According to results, composite lifting index was 14.77. Low back pain prevalence among workers was reported equal to 100%; also, Low back pain intensity was equal to 68.8 ± 17.8. The mean of Low back pain disability index among workers has been reported equal to 41.3 ± 17.1 (severe crippled).
Conclusions: The results show that composite lifting index value for these jobs exceeded 3, which means that there is a significant level of physical stress associated with these jobs for nearly all workers. Both strength and endurance for this job are high; therefore, job redesigning could decrease the physical demands, Low back pain prevalence, and Disability index, through modifying the job layout and work stations.
