Cumulative trauma disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tenosynovitis can be caused, precipitated, or aggravated by repeated exertions with the hand. This paper describes a study in a poultry processing factory that proceeds from an analysis of health records to an analysis of work methods, postures and forces. Alternative work procedures and knife designs are recommended to reduce stressful work postures and forces.
