RR211 - Further development of the usability and validity of the Quick Exposure Check

Work related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) are a common health problem throughout the industrialised world and a major cause of disability. This Quick Exposure Check allows physical work activities to be assessed in collaboration with the worker. It has been designed to be quick, easy to use and not require extensive training before use. A one-page assessment sheet includes questions for both the practitioner (observer) and the worker to quantify exposure to risk for WMSDs.
