Summary This paper presents a framework for motion capture and musculoskeletal analysis of underground mining procedures. The framework discusses suitable motion capture solutions, musculoskeletal modelling and best practices. Preliminary analysis was conducted to assess quantitative musculoskeletal risks of rod handling and fitting with the drilling rig. The preliminary results of the analysis provide recommendations to minimise risks of potential muscular injuries.
