Resumen 96 women in the electronics industry were followed over a 2-year period. Their work was traditionally "light", characterised by repetitive arm movements, short work cycles and static work postures. The independent variables studied were: muscle strength, previous medical history, productivity, hobbies and work technique. By stepwise multiple regression analysis these independent variables were related to frequency, severity and localisation of occupational cervico-brachial disorders (OCD), subdivided into 4 stages. Working technique, previous sick-leave and high productivity imply an increased risk of OCD. Static muscle strength and change of working tasks could be identified as predictors for improvement.
