The ageing of the workforce and presence of physically demanding jobs contribute to the widespread occurrence of musculoskeletal disorders."

Each of the contributors is an internationally renowned expert in their own right." "The book will be of interest to a wide range of professionals and researchers in ergonomics, occupational health, epidemiology, psychology and engineering. It will also serve as an important source of information for policy makers."--BOOK JACKET
