Systematic Review for Occupational Safety and Health Questions

There are many different types of occupational safety and health questions and a variety of scientific methods to answer them. Systematic review is one method for comprehensively reviewing a body of scientific literature. It is an explicit and transparent process to identify, select, synthesize, and critically appraise the scientific literature relevant to a specific question.
Systematic review methods include:
•A clear statement of the question that the literature search is intended to address
• Explicit, pre-specified methods to gather and assess the quality of the evidence that minimizes bias
• Documentation of criteria for decision making
One benefit of the use of systematic review methods is improving the transparency and public documentation of how scientific evidence is collected. Its use also helps document the thoroughness of a scientific assessment and the use of the best available evidence. The use of systematic review methods does not replace the need for expert scientific judgment.
