Abstract | Full Text

The present work was developed in Bacorehuis Sinaloa, a forgotten and poorly studied sector where workers (artisanal fishermen) are constantly affected by musculoskeletal problems, work fatigue, tiredness, as well as other problems that affect their health and are caused directly by the intense and demanding working days to which they are exposed for up to six days of the week. During the development of this study, techniques were applied for the evaluation and analysis of fatigue in artisanal fishermen such as Yoshitake and 4 Luke points. After analyzing the results, we found that fatigue is present throughout the workweek, given that workers have unfavorable eating habits, many of them are elderly, and they are not covered by any public or private medical institution, which makes them a vulnerable target and unprotected from a work accident.
