Lower limb MSD

Relative to work-related musculoskeletal disorders of the upper extremity and lower back area, much less investigative focus has been placed on the prevention of lower limb musculoskeletal disorders and injury (LLD) in the workplace. This work was commissioned to examine more closely the nature and extent of workplace lower limb problems and the causal agents with the aim of informing evidence based guidance and advice for workers and employers. It had the following objectives:
• To identify the nature and extent of work related LLD that are suffered by workers as
well as key risk factors.
• To identify strategies for risk control and injury prevention.
• To identify knowledge gaps and viable directions for research.
