Seyed Reza Aghazadeh*, Majid Ahmadi, Maryam Akbari and Hanieh Khodaei Maleki

Working in chain stores leads to fatigue and numerous complaints from sellers due to standing for a long time, and on the other hand, rest time during the work shift is not considered. The purpose of this study is to investigate the situation of chain store sellers in the field of varicose veins. 136 salespeople were selected in a chain store and information was collected using questionnaires, occupational medicine records, and medical examinations. The results of the study showed that despite the very young age of the workers and their low work experience, 42% of the workers have symptoms of varicose veins. Therefore, immediate intervention is completely felt in this field. Changing the work station from a fixed stand to a mobile stand among the work stations and also using appropriate rest time are other suggested solutions.
