Materials   and   Methods :   Two   questionnaire   were   used   to   check   the   prevalence   of   back   pain   and   work   related   fear.   The   questionnaire   gathered   demographic data   as   well   as   information   on   occurrence   of   back   pain   complaints   in   the   previous   3   months.   Descriptive   statistics,   frequency,   and   Chi-square   analyses   were used. Results :   The   response   rate   to   the   questionnaire   was   78%   (117/150).   Of   the   117   responders   included   in   the   study,   the   one-year   prevalence   of   WMSDs   was 62.3%,  The frequency of WMSDs was not gender related  nor  it was related to age .WMSDs' impact on work was minor. Conclusions:    WMSDs   among   marble   factory   worker   were   common,   with   lower   back      affected   most.   Further   research   is   needed   to   investigate   the   effect   of risk factors as psychosocial load, and general health status on prevalence musculoskeletal disorders.
