Abstract

There are evidence of a causal relationship between physical exertion at work and work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD). Taxi drivers and taxi motorcyclists generally have the risk factors of WMSD. The purpose of this study was to find out the difference of WMSD between taxi drivers and taxi motorcyclists. The design of this study was cross-sectional study. The subjects were 30 taxi drivers and 30 motorcycle taxi riders (age range 25-30 years old), who had experiences more than one year. They were selected using purposive sampling (October - December 2017). Musculoskeletal disorders obtained through interviews using Nordic Body Map questionnaire. Data were analyzed by SPSS application using independent t-test (p value < 0.05). The result of this study shown that there was difference of WMSD between taxi drivers and taxi motorcyclists significantly (p < 0.05). Taxi motorcyclists had more prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders than taxi drivers.
