Does occupational lifting affect the risk of hypertension?
Cross-sectional and prospective associations in the Copenhagen City Heart Study Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate cross-sectional and prospective associations between heavy occupational lifting and hypertension. Methods: Data from the third, fourth and fifth examinations of the Copenhagen City Heart Study were included. Multivariable logistic regression models were applied to adjust for sex, age, body mass index (BMI), smoking, education, self-rated cardiorespiratory fitness, vital exhaustion and baseline blood pressure, and were used to estimate (i) the cross-sectional association...
Occupational lifting during pregnancy and risk of fetal death in a large national cohort study
Objective The aim of the present study was to examine the association between occupational lifting and the risk of fetal death according to gestational age. Methods We used data from the Danish National Birth Cohort (1996–2002). Among 71 500 occupationally active women, 2886 experienced a fetal death. Information on lifting and relevant covariates was collected in interviews around week 16 of pregnancy. The majority of fetal losses (N=2032) happened before the scheduled interview, and exposure data were collected retrospectively from these women. We analyzed early miscarriage (≤12 weeks...
Prospective evaluation of the 1991 NIOSH Lifting Equation
An epidemiological prospective cohort study of the ability of the 1991 NIOSH Lifting Equation to predict loss of time from work due to low back pain (LBP) or to predict reports of LBP followed 515 industrial workers in jobs requiring manual handling for 18 months. Baseline measurements were made of their jobs, histories of musculoskeletal trouble and of psychosocial variables. Longitudinal analysis of tasks was based on 367 subject/job combinations. The strongest predictor of future LBP was a history of LBP. No relationship was found between the Composite Lifting Index (CLI) and either the incidence...
