Scores of personnel for carrying patients were collected using MAPO checklist and PTAI and finally, data analysis was performed using SPSS19 software  and Chi-square and Spearman tests.
According to the results of our data 62.68%  and 91.11%   of the subjects were at risk of musculoskeletal disorder (the MAPO and PTAI index, respectively). Based on Pearson statistical test, there was no significant correlation between MAPO and PTAI findings in this study.
