||This article reviews 19 methods used for evaluating the risk of low back problems in a given work situation. Each of these methods is reviewed briefly and evaluated regarding its orientation towards "risk quantification" as opposed to "search of solutions". From this review, a coherent set of methods is proposed corresponding to the four levels of the SOBANE strategy (screening, observation, analysis and expertise).
