In the present paper we performed an "on-site" ergonomic analysis of the work tasks in in-plant industrial workers. Specific work cycles have been identified and analysed. We measured spatial and temporal parameters of the different actions performed by the workers, and we then defined the related risk levels according to the internationally accepted guide-lines. The results obtained indicate the need of an ergonomic intervention with the aim of providing structural changes in the work station.
