Beware of kneeling or squatting postures - knee pain in the working population

BIBB/BAuA-Factsheet 17

Knee pain occurs frequently in the working population and can lead to impairments both at work and in everyday life. Even today, working in unfavourable postures is still widespread in many occupations. The BIBB/BAuA 2012 Employment Survey shows that frequent work in unfavourable postures, such as kneeling, is associated with an increased risk of knee pain at work. This factsheet identifies occupation groups that are particularly affected and highlights preventive measures.
