  1. 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...
  2. 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....
  3. Authors respond to letter from Dr. Albert Miller.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 51(10):800 (2008) PMID 18773423

  4. 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....
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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....
  8. Predictors of shoulder and back injuries in nursing home workers: a prospective study.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 41(6):466 (2002) PMID 12173371

    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....
  9. Comparison of self-assessment of solvent exposure with measurement and professional assessment for female petrochemical workers in China.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 41(6):483 (2002) PMID 12173373

    Workers' self-assessment and professional assessment provided useful information for benzene, styrene, and xylene exposure, but not for toluene exposure. False agreement can be obtained when professional assessment was used as reference in validity study....
  10. The work environment impact assessment: a methodologic framework for evaluating health-based interventions.

    American Journal of Industrial Medicine 39(2):218 (2001) PMID 11170164

    The goal of using WEIA is not to engage in a risk-risk debate that stalls worthwhile interventions. Rather, we propose that by conducting a Work Environment Impact Assessment, all possible positive and negative "ripple" effects stemming from an intervention can be considered, so that the interventio...
