extensive training, the benefits of the ergonomics and safe working methods are
evident. For example, one workplace’s statistics, 2013-2016, shows a gradual decrease
in sickness absences due to WMSDs of 29%. In another workplace reduction of sickness
absences due to WMSDs3 from 2013 to 2016 is 26%. Also, the following qualitative
results have been received: “Quality of the care has improved because nurses work in
a more patent activating way. Patients react less aggressively towards nurses. The
work is better planned than before. We do not need so many replacement nurses /
recruiting and teaching time is saved. The working atmosphere is better when people
are in less pain when working.”
