Uit recent onderzoek onder beeldschermwerkers met rsi-klachten die door blijven werken, blijkt dat deze beroepsziekte een kostbare verzuimfactor is voor organisaties. In het ergste geval vallen werknemers hierdoor in het ziekteverzuim, in het gunstigste geval leidt het tot productieverlies bij mensen die doormodderen met rsi. Het advies in deze...

Aims: To investigate the longitudinal relation between physical capacity (isokinetic lifting strength, static endurance of the back, neck, and shoulder muscles, and mobility of the spine) and low back, neck, and shoulder pain. Methods: In this prospective cohort study, 1789 Dutch workers participated. At baseline, isokinetic lifting strength,...

Er is de laatset tijd veel anndacht in de literatuur geweest voor werkgerelateerde klachten van nek en bovenste extremiteiten, ook wel Repetitive Strain Injuries genoemd. Gegevens over het vóórkomen van ernstige en minder ernstige klachten van de nek en bovenste extremiteitne zijn schaars, vooral gegevens over de situatie in Nederland.

As the evidence for an association between spina bifida and parental agricultural occupations is inconclusive, we evaluated this association and the potential associations between spina bifida and other parental occupations. Three register-based case-referent studies were conducted in Sweden, Spain, and Hungary. From the registries of congenital...

The results of longitudinal studies reporting on the relation between physical capacity and the risk of musculoskeletal disorders have never been reviewed in a systematic way. The objective of the present systematic review is to investigate if there is evidence that low muscle strength, low muscle endurance, or reduced spinal mobility are...

Purpose: To identify the risk factors for the onset of arm-wrist-hand and neck-shoulder symptoms among office workers and to estimate the relative contribution of these risk factors by calculating Population Attributable Fractions (PAFs). Methods: A prospective cohort study was conducted among 1951 office workers with a follow-up duration of 2...

Examination of the influence of physical exposure at work on neck and upper limb symptoms in office workers. Data were used from a prospective cohort study with a follow-up period of 3 years. Independent variables were physical exposure at work, observed and self-reported. Outcome measures were neck–shoulder symptoms and elbow–wrist–hand...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the effects of sporting activity on absenteeism in a working population. METHODS: Data were used from a prospective cohort study in a working population with a follow up period of 3 years and were collected with yearly questionnaires or collected from company records. Complete data on absenteeism, sporting activity, and...

Few studies have examined the concepts of workstyle and overcommitment in relation to the occurrence of neck and upper limb symptoms. The aim of this study was to examine whether a high-risk workstyle is a mediator in the relation of work-related exposure (job demands and computer work) and overcommitment to neck and upper limb symptoms. The...

A long duration of computer use is known to be positively associated with Work Related Upper Extremity Disorders (WRUED). Self-report by questionnaire is commonly used to assess a worker's duration of computer use. The aim of the present study was to assess the validity of self-report and computer use software (WorkPace®) to assess the duration...

Worldwide, millions of office workers use a computer. Reports of adverse health effects due to computer use have received considerable media attention. This systematic review summarises the evidence for a relationship between the duration of work time spent using the computer and the incidence of hand-arm and neck-shoulder symptoms and disorders...

Introduction: "Ergonomic" questionnaires are widely used in epidemiological field studies to study the association between workstation characteristics, work posture and musculoskeletal disorders among office workers. Findings have been inconsistent regarding the putative adverse effect of work postures. Underestimation of the true association...

Work related neck and upper limb symptoms have a multi-factorial origin. Possible risk factors are of a physical, psychosocial or personal origin. These factors can reinforce each other and their influence can also be mediated by cultural or societal factors. Initially, most research on neck and upper limb symptoms focused on work-related...

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between psychosocial work characteristics and neck and upper limb symptoms and to examine to what extent this relationship could be explained by other risk factors. Data were used from a prospective cohort study in a working population, with a follow-up period of 3 years. The 3-year...

This field study examined associations between workplace stressors and office workers' computer use patterns. We collected keyboard and mouse activities of 93 office workers (68F, 25M) for approximately two work weeks. Linear regression analyses examined the associations between self-reported effort, reward, overcommitment, and perceived stress...

Objectives: In both science and media, the adverse effects of a long duration of computer use at work on musculoskeletal health have long been debated. Until recently, the duration of computer use was mainly measured by self-reports, and studies using more objective measures, such as software-recorded computer duration, were lacking. The...
