The activities of industrial maintenance, which provide operational availability and reliability to the industrial production system, have at their core occupational risks to workers, particularly of ergonomic that influence the physical and organizational working conditions. The ergonomic factors related to industrial maintenance activities are poorly studied. Therefore, there is a need to identify the risks of ergonomic intrinsic to industrial maintenance activities and thus classify them regarding: the degree of treatment priority, their dangerousness concerning the physical conditions of the maintenance technician and their influence on the quality of maintenance services. This article demonstrates the identification of ergonomics risks presents during the performance of industrial maintenance activities, with the application of the AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) multi criteria analysis. This risk analysis directs to the criticality level determination, and to the impact that these risks may result regarding the quality of the industrial maintenance service provided.
