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.

A screening tool for the risk of disability retirement due to musculoskeletal disorders
Objective: This study aimed to develop and validate a risk screening tool using a points system to assess the risk of future disability retirement due to musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). Methods: The development population, the Health 2000 Survey, consisted of a nationally representative sample of Finnish employees aged 30–60 years (N=3676) and the validation population, the Helsinki Health Study, consisted of employees of the City of Helsinki aged 40–60 years (N=6391). Both surveys were linked to data on disability retirement awards due to MSD from national register for an 11-year...
Work-related biomechanical exposure and job strain in midlife separately and jointly predict disability after 28 years
A Finnish longitudinal study Higher level of work-related biomechanical exposure and job strain in midlife separately and jointly carried a higher risk for increase in disability after 28 years. Mitigation of both of these co-occurring exposures at work in midlife could reduce the risk of disability in later life. Thus the workplace should be promoted as an arena for preventive interventions regarding disability in old age.

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...
Tarification à l’expérience, incidence des troubles musculo-squelettiques et arrêts de travail
Dans un grand nombre de pays, l'assurance des risques professionnels est financée par les entreprises qui versent des contributions modulées selon leur sinistralité passée. En France, pour une entreprise de plus de 10 salariés, plus le nombre et la gravité des accidents et maladies professionnels sont importants, plus le montant de sa contribution sera élevée. Ce mode de tarification devrait contribuer à sensibiliser les employeurs à l'intérêt de développer des démarches préventives ...
Work productivity loss in young workers
This report estimates work productivity loss due to musculoskeletal pain in 23-year-old workers in Western Australia based on findings from the longitudinal Raine Study. The report ascertains the prevalence of diagnosed back and neck pain among young workers, provides estimates of work productivity loss among young workers and examines the impact of musculoskeletal pain specifically on work productivity. Productivity measures used in this report are absenteeism due to health reasons, absenteeism due to any other reason, and presenteeism. The report also assesses the prevalence of psychological...
Workers' compensation claims for musculoskeletal disorders and injuries of the upper extremity and knee among union carpenters in Washington State, 1989-2008
BACKGROUND: Numerous aspects of construction place workers at risk of musculoskeletal disorders and injuries (MSDIs). Work organization and the nature of MSDIs create surveillance challenges. METHODS: By linking union records with workers' compensation claims, we examined 20-year patterns of MSDIs involving the upper extremity (UE) and the knee among a large carpenter cohort. RESULTS: MSDIs were common and accounted for a disproportionate share of paid lost work time (PLT) claims; UE MSDIs were three times more common than those of the knee. Rates declined markedly over time and were most pronounced...

Time trends in musculoskeletal disorders attributed to work exposures in Ontario using three independent data sources, 2004–2011
Objective: Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the leading cause of work disability in the developed economies. The objective of this study was to describe trends in the incidence of MSDs attributed to work exposures in Ontario over the period 2004–2011. Methods: An observational study of work-related morbidity obtained from three independent sources for a complete population of approximately six million occupationally active adults aged 15–64 in the largest Canadian province. We implemented a conceptually concordant case definition for work-related non-traumatic MSDs...
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders on the decline in Ontario
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders appear to be on the decline in Ontario. That's what findings from a comprehensive population-based surveillance study recently done by the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) would suggest. The study, led by IWH president Dr. Cameron Mustard, tracks the occurrence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) over eight years between 2004 and 2011. It uses three independent population databases to take a count of work-related MSDs as reported by the total number of Ontarians active in the labour force in that time period—a sample of about six...
Musculoskeletal Pain and Depressive Symptoms as Predictors of Trajectories in Work Ability Among Finnish Firefighters at 13-Year Follow-Up
Objective: To identify work ability trajectories among Finnish firefighters during a 13-year follow-up. We examined whether baseline musculoskeletal pain and depressive symptoms (DPS) predicted membership of the trajectories. Methods: We studied 411 male firefighters who responded to a questionnaire at both baseline and at least one of two follow-ups. The outcome variable was perceived work ability (0 to 10). The predictors were musculoskeletal and depressive symptoms. Covariates included age, diseases, lifestyle habits, and work-related factors. Results: One fourth of the firefighters belonged...
Dépistage précoce de l’incapacité chronique liée aux lombalgies
Élaboration et validation d'un questionnaire La douleur au bas du dos d'origine non spécifique, aussi appelée lombalgie commune, affecte de 60 à 90 % des travailleurs à un moment ou à un autre de leur vie et disparaît généralement dans une période allant de quelques jours à quelques semaines. Toutefois, pour un petit nombre de travailleurs affectés, le mal de dos perdure et entraîne une incapacité à retourner au travail pour une période prolongée. Cette situation génère...
