||The objective of this study was to develop a task- and occupation-specific registry of musculoskeletal workloads on knees, based on data obtained directly at workplaces by means of a computer-assisted measurement and long-term analysis. The study encompassed individual tasks performed during entire workshifts and involved a total of 530 hours of measurement across 16 tasks and occupations. The register will serve as a useful tool during investigations of individual cases of suspected occupational disease and for the development of suitable prevention measures.
