Effectiveness of ergonomic intervention Supporttive evidence for the belief that ergonomic intervention will reduce the impact of occupational low back pain is not compelling. The only intervention which has been formally evaluated is worker training in manual handling techniques; whilst lifting techniques can be improved, the effect on injury rates has not been clearly demonstrated (Smedley and Coggon, 1994). A recent rigorous evaluation of a ‘back school’ approach to injury prevention found that the programme did not reduce the rate of injury, time off work, or rate of reinjury, even though the subjects’ knowledge of safe behaviour was increased (Daltroy et al.

Physical and psychosocial work factors that had been shown in previous epidemiological studies to increase the risk of back disorders by a factor of 2 or greater were selected to classify individual workers into one of four physical/psychosocial exposure groups. For physical exposure the criteria consisted of heavy frequent lifting or relatively lighter but frequent lifting performed as well as driving. The physical exposures were quantified with respect to a level or amplitude, a frequency or duration.

Annual Prevalence Action Levels Key: N—Neck, Sh—Right and left shoulders, E—Both elbows, WH—Wrist and hands, UB—Upper Back, LB—Lower Back, H—Hips, K—Knees, A—Ankles. 38 C Dickinson It is possible to compare newly collected data with the values shown in Table 1 and focus on those body areas where high levels are located in order to establish if there is a problem and identify the body area affected. For example, if a population study established that 50% of the females were self-reporting neck complaints in the last year, then serious attention might to given to establishing why this may be.
