Ergonomic job analysis is used to systematically identify hazards thought to result in work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Video-based ergonomics job analysis requires the identification of ergonomics problems via systematic analysis of video recordings that are made on a sample of work. While such analysis is commonly used to characterize the biomechanical stressors associated with work, little attention has been given to ensuring that the videos contain a representative sample of the biomechanical stressors that are likely to vary from one person to another, and over time with different work methods or productivity demands. Readers should gain an understanding of how the variability of these stressors can affect the results of the video-based ergonomic job analysis.
