RR273 - The role of work stress and psychological factors in the development of musculoskeletal disorders

This research was conducted to establish the role of stress and other psychological factors on the development and reporting of musculoskeletal disorders. There were two main objectives. Firstly, to investigate factors that increased the likelihood of reporting high perceived job stress and secondly to investigate whether high perceived job stress and other stress reactions increased the likelihood of reporting musculoskeletal complaints.

The Research Report Series are produced in Adobe Acrobat. The use of the latest version of the software is recommended which is available at the Adobe website via the link on this page.
