We linked state data on workers' compensation claims from New Mexico for claimants injured from 1994 to 2000 to fe...
Hepatitis B virus infection and waste collection: prevalence, risk factors, and infection pathway.
Occupational exposure to waste is a possible risk factor for HBV infection. Occupational injury with sharp instruments could be a means of hepatitis B virus transmission. Immunization of MSWWs and adoption of more safe ways for waste collection could be considered in order to control the risk of HBV...
Risk factors for lower extremity fatigue among assembly plant workers.
Work-related fatigue of the lower extremities is a known cause of lost productivity and significant employer costs. Common workplace solutions to reduce fatigue levels include anti-fatigue matting, shoe orthoses, or sit/stand work stations. However, assessment of these anti-fatigue measures within t...

Mental retardation and prenatal methylmercury toxicity.
Methylmercury (MeHg) is a developmental neurotoxicant; exposure results principally from consumption of seafood contaminated by mercury (Hg). In this analysis, the burden of mental retardation (MR) associated with methylmercury exposure in the 2000 U.S. birth cohort is estimated, and...
Experimental human exposure to inhaled grain dust and ammonia: towards a model of concentrated animal feeding operations.
There was no significant change in pulmonary function in the normal subjects following any of the exposure conditions. Among asthmatics, a significant transient decrease in FEV1 was induced by grain dust, but was not altered by ammonia; increased bronchial hyperreactivity was also noted in this grou...
Health effects associated with exposure to residential organic dust.
Exposure to organic dust in residential air affects airways of residents while exposure in homes due to organic wastes affects the skin....
Predictors of shoulder and back injuries in nursing home workers: a prospective study.
These findings suggest social integration and work organization issues may be more important predictors of back and shoulder injuries in nursing assistants than reported resident characteristics as measured by the MDS....
