Effectiveness of measures and implementation strategies in reducing physical work demands due to manual handling at work

Effectiveness of measures and implementation strategies in reducing physical work demands due to manual handling at work

Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment & Health 31(Suppl. 2): 75-87

This review aimed at producing insight into the effectiveness of interventions to reduce the physical work demands associated with manual (materials) handling in the work situation and musculoskeletal symptoms in the longer term. A systematic electronic literature search between 1990 and February 2003 was performed in the following databases: Embase, Medline, HSE-line, Nioshtic, and Nioshtic-2. Three inclusion criteria were applied, and altogether 44 studies were included for review.
