Introduction: The harmful ergonomic factors cause work-related musculoskeletal disorders. They annually cause a relatively high percentage of work-related absences, insurance indemnities, physical and mental discomfort, and ultimately workers' dissatisfaction and reduced productivity and production. To address these risks, ergonomics identifies human capabilities and capacities; moreover, it organizes and adjusts the devices and workstations and the environment appropriate for human beings
Methods: This study was descriptive-cross sectional. In this study, Nordic questionnaire was used to determine the prevalence of musculoskeletal discomfort and ROSA method was utilized to determine the risk level. After completing the forms and checklists, the data were analyzed by SPSS18 software.  Results: Based on the results of the study, the overall prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders was 60.7%. The prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders over the past 12 months (at least one impaired area) was 91.8%. The overall prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders (at least one impaired area) in the last 7 days was 0.82%.
Conclusion: Based on the results, the mean and standard deviation of ROSA score in the staff was 5.57 and 1.26. According to the results of the study, the necessity of ergonomic interventions in personnel training and the purchase of ergonomic equipment are prioritized.
