Resumen This study investigated the epidemiology of needlestick and sharps injuries (NSI), musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), occupational hand dermatitis (HD) and psychosocial factors among a sample of Japanese nurses by means of a self-reporting questionnaire. Among the respondents, 41% had experienced an NSI, 83% reported some kind of MSD (most commonly at the shoulders, lower back or neck) and 80% had experienced some kind of HD symptoms in the previous 12 months; 52% also reported that they frequently undertook strenuous work. Psychological support from work colleagues was most commonly reported as being moderate (50.4%) or high (29.6%). Other findings are discussed.
