These complaints occur when the muscles receive static load repeatedly and for a long time, can cause complaints of damage to joints, ligaments, and tendons. Risk factors that influence musculoskeletal complaints include age, years of work, work attitudes, exercise habits, and smoking habits. This study aims to determine the picture of work posture related to MSDs complaints on tile maker workers in Kelusan Village. This research is a cross sectional study. Sampling was done by cluster sampling method of 205 respondents. Risk assessment of work posture using REBA method and complaint rate of MSDs using Nordic Body Map questionnaire. The results showed that the majority (81.8%) of the working posture of workers at the tile factory were at a moderate risk level which required inspection and changes in hazardous conditions. Spearman statistic test result (α = 0,05) shows there is correlation between work posture with complaint MSDs (p = 0,000) in respondent. To reduce the risk of work postures that can cause MSDs complaints to workers, expect business owners to provide ergonomic work facilities, and machines to work, and rest for a few minutes while the body began to feel fatigue or muscle stress.
