The tools used in this study included four questionnaires: demographic, job design, work context, and body map questionnaires. In order to analyze and test the simultaneous correlation of the variables in this study, the multivariate analysis modeling technique of structural equations was used, during which the fit of the measurement model and the reliability of the structures were confirmed by examining the factor loads, Cronbach’s alpha coefficient, and the composite reliability, and its validity by calculating the Average Extracted Variance (AVE) of the convergence validity of the Fornell-Larcker models. This study used Smart PLS and SPSS software, v. 20 software for data analysis.
Results: The results of descriptive statistical tests showed that among 252 employees, 74.6% were male, and 25.4% were female. The main variables, i.e., work context and job design and their subscales, had acceptable conditions in terms of validity and reliability. The relationship between job design and musculoskeletal disorders was significant (P<0.05).
