ABSTRACT

Background and study aims More than seven out of ten Dutch construction workers describe their work as physically demanding. This can be reduced when ergonomic measures that provide maximum comfort are used. To help construction companies with the introduction of ergonomic measures, participatory ergonomic (PE) intervention can be used. We will look at how well two guidance strategies for a PE intervention work in terms of increase in the use of ergonomic measures, work ability and physical functioning and a decrease in limitations due to physical problems. Who can participate? This study will recruit 12 small and medium enterprises within the Dutch construction industry. These construction companies must be employing a physically demanding occupation and must have a potential to improve the use of ergonomic measures. What does the study involve? Construction companies will be guided by a trained ergonomics consultant through a six-step PE intervention to introduce ergonomic measures to their employees. This guidance will be given through two strategies: either four face-to-face meetings or 13 emails. A protocol for both guidance strategies is made by two ergonomics consultants. The duration of both guidance strategies is six months. The construction companies will be randomly allocated to one of the guidance strategies. At the end of the study, we will compare how well the strategies worked to improve the use of ergonomic measures. A cost-benefit analysis will be performed. What are the possible benefits and risks of participating? Possible benefits for the participating construction companies are decreasing physical work demands of their employees and possible work-related disorders. If the protocol of one or both guidance strategies is successful, the protocol can be introduced to occupational health services in the Netherlands to help other construction companies with the introduction of ergonomic measures. There are no (financial) risks for the participating construction companies and their employees. The guidance of the ergonomics consultants is of no cost for the participating construction companies and they are free in the choice of the ergonomic measure they want to introduce. Where is the study run from? This study has been set up by the Coronel Institute of Occupation Health, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. When is the study starting and how long is it expected to run for? Originally, the recruitment started in spring 2012. However, the recruitment of construction companies has been prolonged to July 2013. The study will end in December 2013. Who is funding the study? The funding has been provided by ZonMw (The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development). Who is the main contact? 1. Henk F. van der Molen, PhD h.f.vandermolen@amc.uva.nl 2. Steven Visser, MSc steven.visser@amc.uva.nl More... »
