  1. Prognosis of shoulder tendonitis in repetitive work: a follow up study in a cohort of Danish industrial and service workers.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):E8 (2003) PMID 12937204 PMCID PMC1740623

    The physical and psychosocial work environment is expected to modify recovery from shoulder disorders, but knowledge is limited. In a follow up study of musculoskeletal disorders in industrial and service workers, 113 employees were identified with a history of shoulder pain combined with clinic...

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):705 (2003) PMID 12937199 PMCID PMC1740637

  3. Driving impairment due to sleepiness is exacerbated by low alcohol intake.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):689 (2003) PMID 12937193 PMCID PMC1740622

    To assess whether low blood alcohol concentrations (BACs), at around half the UK legal driving limit, and undetectable by police roadside breathalysers, further impair driving already affected by sleepiness, particularly in young men, who are the most "at risk" group of drivers for having sleep ...
  4. Do junior doctors take sick leave?

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):699 (2003) PMID 12937196 PMCID PMC1740639

    Nosocomial infections place a heavy burden on overstretched health services. An audit of junior doctors' sick leave behaviour was undertaken in 1993 and again in 2001. The object was to ascertain the level of common infectious illness and to investigate whether junior doctors were remaining at w...
  5. Intervention strategies to reduce musculoskeletal injuries associated with handling patients: a systematic review.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):E6 (2003) PMID 12937202 PMCID PMC1740617

    To report, analyse, and discuss the results of a systematic review looking at intervention strategies to reduce the risk factors associated with patient handling activities. A search strategy was devised to seek out research between 1960 and 2001. Inclusion/exclusion criteria limited the entry o...
  6. Downsizing of staff is associated with lowered medically certified sick leave in female employees.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):E9 (2003) PMID 12937205 PMCID PMC1740624

    To determine whether changes in number of staff in work sites are associated with medically certified sick leave among employees with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The 5720 employees (aged 18-65) were from the WOLF study of cardiovascular risk factors in working men and...
  7. Age related differences in work injuries and permanent impairment: a comparison of workers' compensation claims among adolescents, young adults, and adults.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):E10 (2003) PMID 12937206 PMCID PMC1740614

    There is growing evidence that adolescent workers are at greater risk for work injury. To investigate the severity of work injuries across age groups. Workers' compensation records were used to examine work related injuries among adolescents (15-19 years old), young adults (20-24 years old), and...
  8. Integrative assessment of multiple pesticides as risk factors for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among men.

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):E11 (2003) PMID 12937207 PMCID PMC1740618

    An increased rate of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) has been repeatedly observed among farmers, but identification of specific exposures that explain this observation has proven difficult. During the 1980s, the National Cancer Institute conducted three case-control studies of NHL in the midwestern...
  9. Occupational asthma due to IgE mediated allergy to the flower Molucella laevis (Bells of Ireland).

    Occupational and Environmental Medicine 60(9):701 (2003) PMID 12937197 PMCID PMC1740630

    About 25% of greenhouse flower and/or ornamental plant growers sensitised to workplace flowers or moulds have occupational asthma, a disease that is suffered by 8% of the growers who cultivate these crops. To document a case of occupational asthma due to IgE mediated allergy to the flower Moluce...
