  1. Occupational injuries in Ohio wood product manufacturing: A descriptive analysis with emphasis on saw-related injuries and associated causes...

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 57(11):1265 (2014) PMID 25123487

    We examined 9 years of workers' compensation claims for the state of Ohio in wood product manufacturing with specific attention to saw-related claims. For the study period, 8,547 claims were evaluated; from this group, 716 saw-related cases were examined. The sawmills and wood preservation sub-secto...
  2. Using linked federal and state data to study the adequacy of workers' compensation benefits.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 57(10):1165 (2014) PMID 25223516

    We combined federal and state administrative data to study the long-term earnings losses associated with occupational injuries and assess the adequacy of workers' compensation benefits. We linked state data on workers' compensation claims from New Mexico for claimants injured from 1994 to 2000 to fe...
  3. Hepatitis B virus infection and waste collection: prevalence, risk factors, and infection pathway.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 55(7):650 (2012) PMID 22544469

    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...
  4. Risk factors for lower extremity fatigue among assembly plant workers.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 54(3):216 (2011) PMID 21298696

    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...
  5. Management practices and risk of occupational blood exposure in U.S. paramedics: Needlesticks.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 53(9):866 (2010) PMID 20698019

    These results suggest that greater provision of safety devices and interventions aimed at management practices that promote worker safety could substantially reduce the risk of needlestick among U.S. paramedics. Am. J. Ind. Med. 53:866-874, 2010. (c) 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc....
  6. Authors respond to letter from Dr. Albert Miller.

  7. Bladder cancer risk in sales workers: artefact or cause for concern?

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 49(3):175 (2006) PMID 16421931

    Publication bias explained most of the reported increased bladder cancer risk, but sales-work still appeared to be associated with a small risk in women. Possible causal factors include lower frequency of urination and reduced fluid intake. (c) 2006 Wiley-Liss, Inc....
  8. Mental retardation and prenatal methylmercury toxicity.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 49(3):153 (2006) PMID 16470549

    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...
  9. Experimental human exposure to inhaled grain dust and ammonia: towards a model of concentrated animal feeding operations.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 46(4):345 (2004) PMID 15376225

    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...
  10. Health effects associated with exposure to residential organic dust.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 46(4):381 (2004) PMID 15376216

    Exposure to organic dust in residential air affects airways of residents while exposure in homes due to organic wastes affects the skin....
