Information:  

     Continuing our Visiting Speaker Series, PSHFES is pleased to welcome researcher Dr. David Rempel.  Dr. Rempel's presentation is titled: ‘
First Results from the National MSD Study / Overhead Drilling.'  Findings from 2 studies will be presented:

1)  Seven large prospective epidemiologic field studies have recently been completed in the US to assess exposure-effect relationships between biomechanical risk factors, personal, and psychosocial measures and incident specific upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders.  Initial analysis from one of the sites will be presented focusing on biomechanical factors associated with wrist tendonitis.

2)  Overhead drilling into concrete or metal ceilings is a common task for plumbers, electricians, and sheet-metal workers and is associated with shoulder and arm injuries.  Results from a 5-year study to develop and evaluate interventions for overhead drilling will be presented.  The interventions were tested in the field by over 100 commercial construction workers in Oregon, Washington, BC, and California

     David Rempel, MD, MPH is Professor of Bioengineering at UC Berkeley, Professor of Occupational and Environmental Medicine at UC San Francisco and Director of the Ergonomics Graduate Training Program at UC Berkeley.  The research of his group focuses on understanding how tendons, muscles, and nerves are injured at work and how workplace tools and tasks can be designed in order to prevent musculoskeletal disorders. The publications of his group and a description of the research projects are at http://ergo.berkeley.edu/.

    
     This is a MEMBERS-ONLY event for PSHFES members, free of charge.  You are encouraged to come early to socialize and have dinner. Dinner and drinks are your responsibility and you will be billed individually.
