The lack of physical fitness is a contributing factor to the etiology of musculoskeletal disorders resulting from the manual handling of material in industry. Thus the major objectives of this paper were (1) to discuss the role of physical fitness in the control of occupational injuries; (2) to review techniques available in the exercise physiology literature for increasing human physical capacity in industry; and (3) to review and evaluate studies on the effects of physical training on individuals engaged in manual handling tasks.
