The aim of this study, which was carried out in the Textile Department of the Denizli Printing and Dyeing Industry Inc., was to compare ergonomic work analysis findings in which the functional hand capacity of workers and working conditions were evaluated. A total of 225 textile workers (143 women and 82 men) were included in our study. The working conditions were evaluated by ergonomic work analysis. The functional hand capacities of the workers were evaluated by the Valpar Upper Extremity Range of Motion Test and the Purdue Pegboard Test. The results that were obtained were interpreted by the statistical methods of Pearson correlation analysis, step-wise regression analysis and Tukey's HSD. The results show that it is essential that both the standard tests that are to be applied and the ergonomic analysis play a role in the determination of work standards and in employing personnel.
