Abstract

Analysis of work posture using Rapid Entire Body Assessment (REBA) as the risk factor of work-related musculoskeletal disorders among bus drivers in Bandar Lampung City Fitria Saftarina1, Diana Mayasari1, Dian Octaviani2 1Department of Community Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Lampung University, Bandar Lampung, 35145, Indonesia; 2Faculty of Medicine, Lampung University, Bandar Lampung, 35145, Indonesia Correspondence: Fitria Saftarina (fitria205@yahoo.co.id) Background Bus driver is a job forcing the driver to work in static posture for a long time. Improper posture can be a risk factor of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). This study was aimed to identify work-related MSDs and its association with work posture and other related factors among bus drivers in Bandar Lampung City. Materials and methods This was a cross sectional study involving 101 inter-provincial bus drivers obtained by consecutive sampling technique. Musculoskeletal disorders were assessed using Nordic Body Map to identify the distribution of MSDs on the body, while work posture was measured using Rapid Entire Body Assessment (REBA) to evaluate the level of MSD risk. Results The prevalence of MSDs was 73.3% and were mostly located in the lower back (36.48%), calves (31.08%) and shoulders (28.38%). Most subjects (66.2%) had moderate risk of work posture. There was significant association between MSDs with high risk work posture (AOR=7.68; 95% CI=7.68-353.09); but there was no significant association with work period, age, nutritional status, and exercise. Conclusions High risk work posture is a risk factor of MSDs which significantly increase the risk of the occurrence of MSDs among bus driver. Ergonomic work posture is urgently applied to reduce the incidence of MSDs among drivers.
