Analyse des différences de durées d’indemnisation selon le sexe et le groupe d’âge
Les indicateurs statistiques de santé et de sécurité du travail produits depuis plusieurs années par l'Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) montrent que la durée moyenne d'indemnisation des lésions professionnelles ayant occasionné une perte de temps indemnisée (PTI) a presque doublé en 15 ans. Alors que l'écart de durées moyennes d'indemnisation entre les femmes et les hommes diminue au fil des années, celui entre chaque groupe...
Frequent Exertion and Frequent Standing at Work, by Industry and Occupation Group - United States, 2015
Repeated exposure to occupational ergonomic hazards, such as frequent exertion (repetitive bending or twisting) and frequent standing, can lead to injuries, most commonly musculoskeletal disorders. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders have been estimated to cost the United States approximately $2.6 billion in annual direct and indirect costs. A recent literature review provided evidence that prolonged standing at work also leads to adverse health outcomes, such as back pain, physical fatigue, and muscle pain. To determine which industry and occupation groups currently have the highest prevalence...
Tracking Low Back Problems in a Major Self-Insured Workforce
Toward Improvement in the Patient's Journey Objective: To assess the cost outcomes of treatment approaches to care for back problems in a major self-insured workforce, using published guidelines to focus on low back pain. Methods: Longitudinally tracked episodes of three types of International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision diagnosis code–identified back problems (n = 14,787) during 2001 to 2009. Identified five patterns of care on the basis of the first 6 weeks of claims and compared their total costs per episode with tests that included splits by episode type and duration...
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders on the decline in Ontario
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders appear to be on the decline in Ontario. That’s what findings from a comprehensive population-based surveillance study recently done by the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) would suggest. The study, led by IWH president Dr. Cameron Mustard, tracks the occurrence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) over eight years between 2004 and 2011. It uses three independent population databases to take a count of work-related MSDs as reported by the total number of Ontarians active in the labour force in that time period—a sample of about...
Prevalence and work-relatedness of carpal tunnel syndrome in the working population, United States, 2010 National Health Interview Survey
Background Patterns of prevalence and work-relatedness of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) among workers offer clues about risk factors and targets for prevention. Methods Data from an occupational health supplement to the 2010 National Health Interview Survey were used to estimate the prevalence of self-reported clinician-diagnosed CTS overall and by demographic characteristics. The proportion of these cases self-reported to have been attributed to work by clinicians was also examined overall and by demographic characteristics. In addition, the distribution of industry and occupation (I&O) categories...
Work-Related Knee Injuries Treated in US Emergency Departments
Objective : To characterize work-related knee injuries treated in US emergency departments (EDs). Methods : We characterized work-related knee injuries treated in EDs in 2007 and examined trends from 1998 to 2007 by using the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System—occupational supplement. Results : In 2007, 184,300 (±54,000; 95% confidence interval) occupational knee injuries were treated in US EDs, accounting for 5% of the 3.4 (±0.9) million ED-treated occupational injuries. The ED-treated knee injury rate was 13 (±4) injuries per 10,000 full-time equivalent...
Nonwage losses associated with occupational injury among health care workers
OBJECTIVE: To examine nonwage losses after occupational injury among health care workers and the factors associated with the magnitude of these losses. METHODS : Inception cohort of workers filing an occupational injury claim in a Canadian province. Worker self-reports were used to calculate (1) the nonwage economic losses in 2010 Canadian dollars, and (2) the number of quality-adjusted days of life lost on the basis of the EuroQOL Index. RESULTS : Most workers (84%; n = 123) had musculoskeletal injuries (MSIs). Each MSI resulted in nonwage economic losses of Can$3131 (95% confidence interval,...
Manitoba Workplace Injury and Illness Statistics 2000-2012
Major Highlights of Manitoba Workplace Injury Data, 2000 to 2012 Injuries and injury rate trends The provincial time loss injury rate fell from a high of 5.6 time loss injuries per 100 workers in 2000 to a preliminary level of 3.3 in 2012. This is a drop of 41 per cent over the period. Fatalities The number of occupational fatalities varies significantly from year to year. In 2012, there were 11 acute hazard fatalities and 29 occupational disease fatalities. Musculoskeletal injuries Musculoskeletal injuries, or MSIs, are injuries to or disorders of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves...
Les troubles musculosquelettiques liés au travail : portrait montréalais de surveillance des TMS indemnisés, 1998-2007
Inspiré de la démarche provinciale « TMS sous surveillance », ce portrait montréalais de surveillance des TMS indemnisés (TMSI), propose une série d'indicateurs à partir des données d'indemnisation de la CSST qui permet de dresser un portrait riche en informations sur les TMSI, incluant des analyses selon le sexe et l'âge, ainsi qu'un portrait sectoriel détaillé qui caractérise les TMSI selon le secteur d'activités économiques. Durant les dix années observées,...
Review on the validity and reliability of self-reported work-related illness
Self-report is an efficient and accepted means of assessing population characteristics, risk factors, and diseases and is frequently used in occupational health studies. Little is known on the validity of self-reports used to measure work-related illness. This study reviews the evidence on the reliability and validity of workers' self-reported work-related ill health. For epidemiological research, there is an extensive choice in valid and reliable self-report measures on musculoskeletal disorders and mental health problems. The agreement on an individual level between the result of expert assessment...

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders in the EU - Facts and figures
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) remain the most common occupational disease in the European Union and workers in all sectors and occupations can be affected. Recent figures, for example from Austria, Germany or France, also demonstrate an increasing impact of musculoskeletal disorders on costs This latest report, following on from the Agency's previous research, aims to give an updated overview of the current European situation as regards musculoskeletal disorders, the trends over the years since the first campaign in 2000, and a detailed insight into the causes and circumstances behind MSDs...
