Background and Objective: Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are among the most common types of occupational diseases. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between lifestyle and mental workload components with the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders in employees of the automotive industry.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted among 303 employees of a car manufacturing complex in Iran. Demographic information was collected by a demographic questionnaire. To study the prevalence of musculoskeletal discomfort, lifestyle, and mental workload, Cornell questionnaires, Walker health-promoting lifestyle questionnaires, and NASA-TLX questionnaires, were used, respectively.
Results: 70.70 percent of the participants experienced musculoskeletal disorders in at least one of their organs. It was found that there was a significant relationship between age, work experience, level of education, health responsibility, exercise, physical workload and time pressure, and prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders (P-Value <0.05).
Conclusion: The present study results revealed that the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders and related disabilities in the automotive industry is high, and lifestyle and mental workload parameters are among the most critical risk factors in the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders, so taking control measures by controlling the levels of individual, physical and cognitive risk factors to reduce the prevalence of these disorders has a top priority.
