    Resumen

    The present article proposes the development of a study of projective scope that had as its purpose to formulate a proposal of preventive measures, starting from the identification of the main ergonomic risk factors present in the workplaces of the secretaries of the School of Engineering of the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana - Bucaramanga, in 2017. For this purpose, the population was censused with the Questionnaire for the Risk Factor Identification in Workplaces of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas CSIC - Spain. The results obtained were analysed quantitatively and qualitatively. Subsequently, they were related to ergonomic measurements taken in the second half of 2016 with the REBA (Rapid Entire Body Assessment) method and instruments of this discipline. The main risk factors found were annoying reflexes and glare; repetitive movements of arms, hands and wrists; discomfort of chairs; frequent discomfort in the eyes and back; and sedentary work. Lastly, pathologies were associated to each factor, for which the proposal of preventive measures was made.
