Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are common among hospital workers. This cross-sectional study on 1744 hospital workers showed strong interaction between temperature complaints (OR 2.73), other environmental complaints (OR 3.12) and upper limbs disorders.

Abstract

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are common among hospital workers. This cross-sectional study on 1744 hospital workers showed strong interaction between temperature complaints (OR 2.73), other environmental complaints (OR 3.12) and upper limbs disorders. A significant interaction between temperature and strain for upper limbs disorders (F = 9.52, p=0.023) was also found. Environmental and psychosocial factors can interact increasing significantly the risk of MSDs. © PI-ME, Pavia 2011.
