Participatory approaches to workplace safety management
Bridging the gap between behavioral safety and participatory ergonomics Many researchers and practitioners argue the importance of end-user involvement in workplace safety management, but the research literature and practices remain fractured across orientations. The primary aim of this article is to bridge the gap between two major participatory safety management approaches: behavioral safety and participatory ergonomics. First, an overview and brief history of participative management is presented to provide context for its application to workplace safety. Next, behavioral safety and participatory...
Can beliefs about musculoskeletal pain and work be changed at the national level?
Prospective evaluation of the Danish national Job & Body campaign Using a mixture of networking activities, workplace visits and a mass media campaign, the Danish national Job & Body health campaign improved beliefs about musculoskeletal pain and work among public-sector employees in Denmark. Intensive and long-term national campaigns may be a strategically important tool against musculoskeletal disorders and their consequences in the population. Source: Andersen, L.

Workplace risk management practices to prevent musculoskeletal and mental health disorders: What are the gaps?
Introduction: A large body of evidence demonstrates substantial effects of work-related psychosocial hazards on risks of both musculoskeletal and mental health disorders (MSDs and MHDs), which are two of the most costly occupational health problems in many countries. This study investigated current workplace risk management practices in two industry sectors with high risk of both MSDs and MHDs and evaluated the extent to which risk from psychosocial hazards is being effectively managed. Method: Nineteen, mostly large, Australian organisations were each asked to provide documentation of their relevant...
Identifying the critical physical demanding tasks of paramedic work
Towards the development of a physical employment standard Public safety related occupations including police, fire and military commonly apply physical employment standard (PES) to facilitate job matching, an approach to evaluate if candidates demonstrate acceptable physical capabilities as required to perform the job safely and effectively. In Canada, paramedics remain as one of the few public safety occupations without an evidence-based, validated PES. The purpose of this study was to document and describe the physical demands of paramedic work and to identify the most physically demanding tasks...
Conférence sur la contribution des travailleurs à des lieux de travail plus sûrs
En partenariat avec diverses sociétés d'ergonomie, l'ETUI a organisé les 26 et 27 juin 2017 à Bruxelles une conférence sur la manière dont les travailleurs contribuent à l'amélioration des conditions de travail. Intitulée « Travailleurs et créativité : comment améliorer les conditions de travail par des méthodes participatives », la conférence a réuni des ergonomes, des experts en sécurité et santé au travail, des travailleurs et des représentants...
Tarification à l’expérience, incidence des troubles musculo-squelettiques et arrêts de travail
L'assurance des risques professionnels des travailleurs salariés du Régime général est financée par les entreprises sur la base de cotisations modulées selon leur sinistralité passée. En théorie, ce mode de tarification devrait contribuer à inciter les employeurs à développer des démarches de prévention des risques professionnels et à minimiser ainsi le coût des mauvaises conditions de travail. À partir d'une expérience naturelle observée en région Nord...
How compatible are participatory ergonomics programs with occupational health and safety management systems?
Objectives :Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are a major cause of pain, disability, and costs. Prevention of MSD at work is frequently described in terms of implementing an ergonomics program, often a participatory ergonomics (PE) program. Most other workplace injury prevention activities take place under the umbrella of a formal or informal occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS). This study assesses the similarities and differences between OHSMS and PE as such knowledge could help improve MSD prevention activities. Methods: Using the internationally recognized Occupational Health...
Évaluation de l’implantation du Programme de prévention des troubles musculo-squelettiques liés au travail du Réseau de santé publique en santé au travail
Le Programme de prévention des TMS liés au travail du Réseau de santé publique en santé au travail (RSPSAT) a été mis en place en avril 2008, suite à la publication d'un document de réflexion sur le rôle de la santé publique en prévention des TMS liés au travail et de proposition des orientations de la Table de concertation nationale en santé au travail (TCNSAT) et de l'Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) (Stock et coll., 2005). Ce programme vise l'identification...
Reducing Temporary Work Absence Through Early Intervention
The case of MSDs in the EU With many EU member states set to see 50% of their population diagnosed with an MSD by 2030, this report warns that this growing problem cannot be ignored and must be urgently addressed. MSDs are the leading cause of sickness absence across the EU -44 million workers have MSDs – including back pain and strains of the neck, shoulder and arms. This costs up to €240bn annually in lost productivity and sickness absence, representing up to 2% of GDP across the EU. The report calls on EU member states to coordinate action between government departments, employers...
Sustainable MSD prevention
Management for continuous improvement between prevention and production. Ergonomic intervention in two assembly line companies To increase output and meet customers' needs, companies have turned to the development of production management systems: Kaizen, one piece flow, Kanban, etc. The aim of such systems is to accelerate decisions, react to environmental issues and manage various productions. In the main, this type of management system has led to the continuous improvement of production performance. Consequently, such production management systems can have unexpected negative effects on...
La revue PISTES consacre son dernier numéro aux TMS
Dans la foulée d'une première conférence organisée à Nancy en 2005, se tenait à Montréal, en juin 2008, la 2 e conférence du Groupe de recherche francophone sur les troubles musculo-squelettiques (TMS). Organisée par l'IRSST et parrainée par la Société d'ergonomie de langue française (SELF) et l'Association canadienne d'ergonomie (ACE), cette conférence, De la recherche à l'action, réunissait plus de 250 participants : chercheurs, praticiens et acteurs des milieux...

Manual handling risks associated with the care, treatment and transportation of bariatric patients and clients in Australia
The project to address the following research questions: > What are the OHS risks associated with manual handling of bariatric patients to which workers such as nurses, ambulance officers, fire fighters, and those in the funeral industry in Australia are exposed? > What measures (e.g. plans, policies, processes and equipment, supported by adequate training) have been introduced in Australia to reduce or eliminate the risks? > How effective are the above measures? > Where might further intervention be required to control the risk in Australian workplaces? The exploratory research project...
