Lack of awareness of the principles and rules of ergonomics, inappropriate postures and frequent displacement of patients and loads Can cause musculoskeletal disorders in medical personnel. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of in-person training and social network education on the ergonomic risk factors and musculoskeletal of patient carrier personnel in the  Shahid Bahonar hospital of kerman.
The study has been done on 60 participants in Shahid Bahonar hospital. The participants were randomly divided into two groups of 30. The first group were trained via in-person training method combined with practical work and questionings and the second group were trained via social networks and data were collected through a questionnaire demographic, the questionnaire made their assessment  awareness, Nordic questionnaire along with the scale of the investment rate and the numerical checklist PTAI before Training for one week, one month and six months periods after training and SPSS software was used to analyse the collected data.
low back pain is more prevalent among the patient-carrier personnel. With a significant level of 0.05 in the Wilcoxon test. The amount of P-value at the end of the six-month period in the amount of awareness and  PTAI training approaching scores in both methods was less than 0.05 at a significant correlation. And the amount of P-Value in the analysis of musculoskeletal complaints in the six-month period, conventional training methods in the neck, shoulder, lower back complaint, knees and feet, is less than 0.05 and has significant relationship.Social network education did not result in any significant relationship at the end of six months.
According to the results based on exams ,in-person trainings or social network-based trainings both result in reduction of ergonomic risk factors , musculoskeletal complaints and muscular impact. The in-person education method was more effective rather than social network-based trainings.additionaly reliability of education’s effectiveness was meaningful only at the in-person education method.
Keywords: transfer of the patient, musculoskeletal disorders, ergonomic risk factor
