Abstract: The main focus of the paper is to explore the possibilities of improving the occupational safety and health and effectiveness of workers who perform manual work in the automotive industry using industrial exoskeletons. Exoskeletons are mechanical devices that workers carry and that support workers and strengthen their physical abilities (strength and endurance) when performing difficult, manual and physically demanding tasks that cannot be automated (such as lifting loads and handling loads, positioning and using tools, handling objects, etc.), and enable them to perform their work activities more effectively. The analysis of numerous examples from practice concluded that the use of exoskeletons contributes to the reduction of injuries at work and the improvement of the general health of workers through the reduction of musculoskeletal disorders, neck, shoulder, back pain, stress and fatigue. Also, the application of industrial exoskeletons increases the efficiency, productivity and effectiveness of workers.
