Abstract

This review summarizes the knowledge regarding ergonomics and musculoskeletal disorders associated with computer work. A model of musculoskeletal disorders and computer work is proposed and the evidence and implications of the model together with issues for future research are discussed. The model emphasizes the associations between work organization, psychosocial factors and mental stress on the one hand and physical demands and physical load on the other. Interventions aimed at reducing musculoskeletal disorders due to computer work should be directed at both physical/ergonomic factors and work organizational and psychosocial factors. Interventions should be carried out with management support and active involvement of the it/dividual workers. The purpose of this research is to examine the factors that contribute to employee awareness on office ergonomics. The data analysis is based on the theoretical framework developed in consideration of the independent variables in this study, viz., Training and Employer Commitment and the dependent variable, viz., Employee Awareness. The results derived from this study would enable the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission to identify factors that most influence Employee Awareness among employees. For the purpose of data collection for this research, primary data and secondary data is used. A sample of 169 respondents was assembled to respond to the questionnaire. Responses collected were processed and analyzed using Reliability Analysis, Pearson Correlation Analysis and Multiple Regression Analysis. The final result established that both research hypotheses are accepted, suggesting that Training and Employer Commitment have a significant influence on Employee Awareness of office ergonomics and musculoskeletal disorders associated with computer work.
