However, the agricultural business is considered as one of the most hazardous sectors in both developing and developed countries with high rates of accidental deaths, injuries, and work-related illnesses [1,2]. Agriculture is a physically demanding and places farmers and farmworkers at potential risks of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). For example, OLіLng and carrying heavy loads; working with periodic trunk bending, risking from trips and/or falls on slippery and/or uneven walkways, exposing of accidents due to volatile actions of livestock, and uncovering to whole-body vibrations from farm vehicles and hand-transmitted vibrations from chain saws and powered hand tools are amongst the many physical hazards and stressors reported in the agricultural industry safety and health issues [3].
