Despite decades of research on seat ergonomics, it still takes several stages to find comfortable seats for 8- to 12-hours sedentary workers and to find its correlation to work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs). In addition, knowledge of seats, sitting posture, and worker behaviour while sitting are very limited. The purpose of this article is to understand sitting as a hazard, the body posture while sitting, and the behaviour of workers when sitting. The behaviour of a worker when sitting is determined by the profession, the type of work, the workplace, the seat used, and the individual variables. The method used in this research is library research. The result is that seats may cause work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs). The conclusion is that more research on chairs and posture is required because a good knowledge of chairs and posture can prevent workers from work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs).
