Abstract

Years of occupational health research in construction indicated that more information was needed to help bring proper attention to specific suffering by certain construction trades. In this study, knee disorders in Carpenter specialties were examined by observation and expert opinion in order to rank specific factors of exposure. Ergonomic profiles for an exhaustive taxonomy of their work were found. A comparison of validated methods of exposure assessment was useful in identifying key factors of exposure, and to strengthen the epidemiologic link between the task-exposure matrix and outcomes of knee disorder.
