  This study was conducted among workers of an Iranian zinc industry with the objective of determination of the prevalence rate of Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) among production workers. In this study, all 6 production units of the factory were studied. In each unit, 50% of the workers were randomly selected and included in the study. A total of 98 workers participated. The nordic musculoskeletal questionnaire was used as a collecting data tool to study the prevalence of MSDs. The vast majority of the study population (77.6%) had experienced some form of symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders during the last 12 months. The highest prevalence was reported in the lower back (47.9%) and upper back (34.6%). MSDs had occurred with a high rate among zinc workers. Corrective measures for reducing risk level seemed essential. Elimination of awkward postures and manual materials handling in the workplace were recommended.
