Does Job Rotation Reduce Illness?

Job Rotation reduces wrist and hand pains but doesn’t do much else according to a review.
Occup Environ Med. 2017 in press
Is job rotation effective for prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders and sick leave?
Rasmussen CD
no abstract

  • did not  reduce sick leave for musculoskeletal illness.
  • did reduce hand and wrist pains

Comment – perhaps someone in a particular job gets work-hardened to that and a new recruit would be susceptible to injury until work hardened. Rotation sounded like a great idea, but didn’t seem to work that well.
