Monitoring workplace fatigue

I wonder whether any colleagues have carried out an active campaign to measure workplace fatigue, including bending, twisting, reaching, etc. for manual workplace tasks?
There is a scale called the Borg scale, which utiilises a comfort survey and asks participants to say a level of strain, etc. they're feeling, but I wonder if anybody has gone one step further to measure the amount of bending, twisting, etc. carried out and whether you did this yourself or brought in a specialist?

Thanks in anticipation of your help.
