||Musculoskeletal disorders are among the most frequent health hazards faced by fishermen carrying out routine tasks on board fishing vessels. Furthermore, it is necessary to understand that fishing is a traditional sector in which it is difficult to impose ergonomic improvements or changes in working methods. Such changes are generally not implemented if they require more time for the same task. This study analyses the movements made by fishermen of two Spanish fishing vessels during unloading tasks using the evaluation method of the INSHT and that of the NIOSH. Findings are discussed and recommendations for improvement are proposed.
