Abstract

The purpose of this research was to determine the extent ofthe influence of Body Mass Index (BMI) Variations on musculoskeletal discomfort. The steps taken are first to calculate the Body Mass Index (BMI), measure the level of musculoskeletaldiscomfortofeachcleaningworkerwhoworksin an elevated place by distributing the Nordic Body Map questionnaire, then perform a statistical test with the Chi-Square Test. The results of this research are painful areas of musculoskeletal discomfortisthe left shoulder, right shoulder, back,waist, buttocks, right knee andleftleg.FromtheChi-SquareTestresultsobtainedp-value for the left shoulder = 0.006, right shoulder = 0.003, back = 0.00, waist = 0.00, buttocks = 0.00, right knee = 0.001 and left leg = 0.00, because all <0.05 then all null hypotheses are rejected, this fact means there is a relationship between BMI and musculoskeletal discomfort that is felt sick. The conclusion is an un-ergonomic posture in the work will cause the musculoskeletal discomfort area and the higher the person’s BMI level will be susceptible to pain complaints, the lowerthe BMI than the fewer complaints ofpain.Keywords: Body Mass Index (BMI), Musculoskeletal Discomfort, Cleaning Workers, Work in an elevated place.
