||A cross-sectional study was conducted to assess the association of upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders and work-related factors among employees using video display terminals at a large metropolitan newspaper. A total of 973 workers completed the survey on their symptoms, job tasks, and psychosocial and work organization conditions. The results suggest a high prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders of the upper extremities among newspaper employees and they provide additional evidence that increased work load, time pressure, and more hours of computer use are related to the occurrence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders among these workers, particularly for disorders in the hand or wrist area.
