Título Personal and job characteristics of musculoskeletal injuries in an industrial population

Resumen A cross-sectional study of 10,350 employees of an oil manufacturing facility was conducted; 275 employees with low back and 456 with non-low back musculoskeletal injuries were compared with 8,295 employees without such injuries. The study shows that estimated relative risks (RRs) for low back injuries are significantly higher among smokers (RR=1.54, P<.01) and overweight persons (RR=1.42, P<.01). This is also true for non-low back musculoskeletal injury (RR=1.23, P=.05 for smokers and RR=1.53, P<.01 for the overweight). Persons in more physically demanding jobs had an increased RR for both low back and non-low back musculoskeletal injuries (RR=1.57, P<.01 and RR=1.35, P=.02, respectively). An integrated injury prevention programme for such injuries is suggested.
