The study utilized a correlational type of research design using convenience sampling. A total of 50 office workers were included in the population but only 44 agreed to participate in the study. A questionnaire (M-NMQ) and Researcher Made Observation Checklist were used as data gathering tools. Statistical techniques used were Kendall Tau-B correlation coefficient to determine the relationship of office workers in NPI with work-related musculoskeletal complaints as to monitor, keyboard, mouse, chair, level of object, lighting, temperature and rest break and Fishers’ Exact Test to determine the correlation between office workers in NPI with compliance to ergonomic training and work-related musculoskeletal complaints. Based from the results of this study, compliance of the office workers of NPI to the given training is not a sufficient basis alone to determine the relationship between the compliance and work-related musculoskeletal complaints. The activities outside work can also be a major factor in the development of work-related musculoskeletal complaints. This includes the household chores, travelling, driving, sports, outing, dancing, jogging, going to the gym and gardening.
