ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the study regarding the work-related musculoskeletal disorders. A comparison was made on the prevalence of arm pain perceived by workers to be work-related with the prevalence of arm pain among persona who experience occupational exposure to any of four physical activities that were believed to give rise to arm pain. The aim of the comparison is to assess the potential for overestimation of attribution to work by affected workers. The comparisons made are only valid if the estimate of occupational attribution made from questions about exposure to the four arm-straining exposures is correct.
