||This study describes the various types of material flows for linen (delivery and distribution of clean linen, collection and sorting of used linen) observed in four hotels of different classes. The strenuousness of the work of linen maids was evaluated based on the estimated weight of linen carried, work posture and cardiofrequency measurements. Results indicated that this occupation involves a moderate to high physical workload, primarily due to the manual handling of the linen and the loading and unloading of carts.
