Introduction: In ergonomics, adaptation to the work area concerns the man. In the oil production areas, it requires diverse work, adopting different forced positions in each of the tasks, causing musculoskeletal pathologies or musculoskeletal disorder (SMD). In a study carried out on several operators of the production plants, the different postures per exposure are identified, in order to determine some clinical occupational picture. when applying the ISO 11226-2000 methodology for forced postures and based on the calculation of the finite sample of 411 operators, 63.5% represent low back pain, while 24.9% present an occupational clinical picture of cervical problems and 11.6% tolerate TME. Results and Conclusions: In the main dysergonomic pains, they are analyzed according to the work cycles per task to be performed, certain pathologies such as thoracolumbar spine (waist), cervical spine (neck), rotator cuff syndrome or capium tunnel syndrome. Therefore, these symptoms over time become chronic, affecting health, since an occupational health plan with an emphasis on postural biometrics reduces exposure to forced postures.
