Resumen Report on a study of the working conditions at one of the assembly lines in a factory of trucks in Gothenburg, Sweden. Heavy loads on the back, necks and arms caused by the work posture were reported. Work rotation and improvements in workplaces are proposed. A new instrument for measuring body postures was tested and found to function properly. The vibration exposure had been reduced by a factor of two by changing from impact wrenches to nut runners when possible. The frequency-weighted 4-hour equivalent value was 1m/s2. The mean level for the eight most exposed workers was 1.3m/s2. The risk of vibration injury was therefore judged to be low. The noise level was relatively high, depending on the high level of background music, 80-93dB(A).
