This study analysis the musculoskeletal diseases in a cable manufacturing facility and provides new applications to eliminate physical risk factos. Based on video records, Quick Exposure Check (QEC) are made for ergonomic risk analysis and required arrangements are suggested for the related departments. Then, results are assesed in terms of efficiency. Finally, it was seen that ergonomics analysis have decreased musculoskeletal disease risks.
