The development of the shipbuilding sector and the increase in employment in this field include the increasing workforce, the occupational health and safety as well as the ergonomic evaluation of the employees and the improvement of the conditions. It has been observed that the measures taken by many employers to prevent occupational accidents do not include ergonomic regulations and there is no sensitivity in this regard. In order to analyze ergonomic risks, it is necessary to know which methods should be used. The aim of this study is to determine which of the techniques used in ergonomic risk assessment (REBA, OWAS, QEC, PLIBEL and MANTRA) will be more suitable in the Shipbuilding Sector.
