Workplace Interventions can Reduce Sickness Absence for Persons With Work-Related Neck and Upper Extremity Disorders
A One-Year Prospective Cohort Study Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate whether workplace interventions are effective in reducing sickness absence in persons with work-related neck and upper extremity disorders and whether disorder improvement after intervention reduces sickness absence. Methods: This study was a prospective cohort study of workers with work-related neck pain or upper extremity disorders. Data were obtained from the Swedish “Work-related disorders” and “Work environment” surveys. Register data on sickness-absence 1 year after the surveys...
The impact of workplace ergonomics and neck-specific exercise versus ergonomics and health promotion interventions on office worker productivity
A cluster-randomized trial A 12-week workplace combined ergonomics and neck-specific exercise intervention improves sickness presenteeism and monetized health-related productivity loss among a general population of office workers and longer-term sickness absenteeism for those with neck pain, when compared to ergonomics and health promotion education combined. This study provides employers of office workers sought-after evidence of health-related productivity benefit from such workplace interventions.

Prediction models to identify workers at risk of sick leave due to low-back pain in the Dutch construction industry
Objective: The aim of this study was to develop a prediction model based on variables measured in occupational health checks to identify non-sick listed workers at risk of sick leave due to non-specific low-back pain (LBP). Methods: This cohort study comprised manual (N=22 648) and non-manual (N=9735) construction workers who participated in occupational health checks between 2010 and 2013. Occupational health check variables were used as potential predictors and LBP sick leave was recorded during 1-year follow-up. The prediction model was developed with logistic regression analysis among the manual...
Predicting chronic low-back pain based on pain trajectories in patients in an occupational setting
An exploratory analysis We applied latent class growth analysis was applied in low-back pain patients in an occupational setting to determine different pain trajectories, something that has never been done before. The pain trajectories were used as outcome to evaluate a previously developed prognostic model for the development of chronic low back pain. The prediction model shows (after internal validation) a good predictive performance (AUC: 0.75). Source: Panken G, Hoekstra T, Verhagen A, van Tulder M, Twisk J, Heymans MW.
