The Bottom Line: How Effective is Job Rotation on Preventing MSDS?

Written by: humantech on January 23rd, 2018

Humantech ergonomist Blake McGowan shares the findings of two systematic reviews that examined the impact job rotation has on musculoskeletal injuries in this month’s  video.

The results of the first ever randomized control trial found that job rotation:

  • was ineffective at reducing physical workload.
  • did not reduce the signs and symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders.
  • did not reduce pain.
  • did not reduce lost working hours due to injury.
