||Literature review of epidemiologic studies of work-related musculoskeletal diseases. High-risk jobs, identified by means of questionnaires and clinical-epidemiological studies, are reported for each of the body regions: shoulder-neck, elbow-forearm, wrist-hand, low back and hip-knee-ankle. Work-related and individual risk factors are summarised. Preventive measures at the workplace are discussed, and the important role played by the occupational health services as an early warning system is stressed.
