Manual handling risks to midwives associated with birthing pools literature review and incident analysis
This report describes research into the manual handling related risks to midwives associated with providing care to women choosing to use a birthing pool for labour and/or birth at home and in hospital. The research comprised: a review of incidents reported to the Health and Safety Executive, a literature review and familiarisation visits to include discussions with midwives to identify current practices and procedures. The manual handling risks are likely to result from the position of the mother in the pool, as well as from the position of the midwife whilst undertaking tasks at the birthing...
Occupation, participation, inclusion, work role Postural control in different load handling tasks
BACKGROUND : Manual material handling has been attributed as a major risk to human musculoskeletal system. Workers postural stability in these tasks is influenced by holding method, time and weight being handled. OBJECTIVES : The study attempts to investigate postural balance in five different commonly adopted load handling methods amongst female volunteers. METHODS : 10 women subjects performed manual material handling tasks by lifting 9 kg load in five different ways. Lifting tasks included (1) Upfront in palms (2) on head (3) sideways (left) (4) sideways (right) and (5) in bag at back. Normalized...
Clinical guidelines for occupational lifting in pregnancy
Evidence summary and provisional recommendations Empirically based lifting criteria established by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to reduce the risk of overexertion injuries in the general US working population were evaluated for application to pregnant workers. This report proposes criteria to guide decisions by medical providers about permissible weights for lifting tasks performed at work over the course of an uncomplicated pregnancy. Our evaluation included an extensive review of the literature linking occupational lifting to maternal and fetal health. Although...
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...
Les femmes manutentionnaires - Un point de vue biomécanique et ergonomique
Les manutentionnaires encourent des risques très élevés de blessures au dos. Afin de trouver des solutions à ce problème chronique, l’IRSST subventionne une programmation de recherche sur la manutention. Un premier projet issu de cette programmation a comparé les méthodes de travail des manutentionnaires experts et novices masculins et a dégagé des principes de manutention qui serviront de guide à l’élaboration d’un programme de formation. Le présent projet se penchera sur l’étude...
Occupational lifting and pelvic pain during pregnancy
A study within the Danish National Birth Cohort Objectives : Pelvic pain during pregnancy is a common ailment, and the disease is a major cause of sickness absence during pregnancy. It is plausible that occupational lifting may be a risk factor of pelvic pain during pregnancy, but no previous studies have examined this specific exposure. The aim of this study was to examine the association between occupational lifting and pelvic pain during pregnancy. Methods : The study comprised 50 143 pregnant women, enrolled in the Danish National Birth Cohort in the period from 1996–2002. During pregnancy...
