  • Objective: The purpose of this study is to investigate the job stress factors of shipbuilding design workers. Background: Due to the nature of building a ship in a shipyard being a job-order production, we assume shipbuilding design worker's duty be in connection with ship production across the board. Therefore, in this study, we investigate the job stress and occurrence of muscular skeletal disorders due to VDT work and provide prevention programs to fit the job characteristics of design workers. Method: Two hundred and fifteen shipbuilding design workers participated in this study, using survey based on 'Job stress factors evaluation tool for Koreans' that was developed by KOSHA in 2003. The eight job stress factors, which are physical environment, job requirement, job autonomy, job insecurity, organizational system, unfair compensation, relationship conflict, and workplace culture were analyzed with job characteristics and health characteristics. Results: The results showed that the stress level of a job requirement, was relatively higher than that of manufacturing industry workers, meaning that shipbuilding design workers' duties involve heavier workload, higher time pressures, and bigger responsibilities that of manufacturing industry workers. And the stress level of the four job stress factors which are physical environment, job requirement, job autonomy, organizational system was relatively higher than that of office worker. Conclusion: An analysis of a high reliability could not be carried out due to the small number of responses received compared to the total number of shipbuilding design workers. However, it is possible to find and remove the factors that influence job stress of workers based on the researched contents, and it is also expected that the study will help in establishing prevent programs for musculoskeletal disorders that match the nature of the VDT workers. Application: Through this study, our results are expected to be helpful in reducing the shipbuilding design worker's job stress and provide better guidelines for VDT syndrome prevention programs.
