TEchnical measurement project

Physical demands at the workplace are generally acknowledged to be a main risk factor for musculoskeletal disorders and associated with a number of work-related issues (sickness absence and early exit from labour market) imposing an enormous burden on the individual and the society. Exposure assessments in this area have to a large extent been based on self-reported information having a high risk of information and recall bias. There is thus a great need for a technical measurement system capable of providing valid information (of physical work place exposure or physical activity patterns) which can later be applied in larger epidemiological studies on a variety of health- and work-related outcomes. This new PEROSH project led by NRCWE (Denmark) will therefore aim at developing a common PEROSH framework on the state-of-the-art technical measurement systems for physical work load and habitual physical activity.
