Título A randomized controlled trial on whether a participatory ergonomics intervention could prevent musculoskeletal disorders
Información bibliográfica Dec. 2008, Vol.65, No.12, p.849-856. Illus. 42 ref.
Resumen The objective of this study was to examine the efficiency of a participatory ergonomics intervention in preventing musculoskeletal disorders among kitchen workers. It involved 504 workers of 119 kitchens in Finland. Kitchens were randomized to intervention and control groups. The 11 to 14-month intervention guided the workers to identify strenuous work tasks and seek solutions for decreasing physical and mental workload. Altogether 402 ergonomic changes were implemented. Individual data on musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and sick leave were collected by means of questionnaires at baseline, every three months during the intervention and during a follow-up after one year. No systematic differences in any outcome variable were found between the intervention and control groups.
