    Occupational Health Services Professionals; skills, needs and experiences shared in a learning network: Co-operative inquiry performed in the manufacturing sector2018Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Work environment conditions can influence individuals, organisations as well as society, and economic consequences can be extensive. The employer is responsible for the work environment,but must engage Occupational Health Services (OHS) or similar if the own competenceis not sufficient. Consequently, the professional skills of OHS providers is an important topic, as the services delivered are aimed at contributing to a good work environment. However, research in this area was scant and there was a call for illumination of what professional skills are needed within OHS. There was also a need to find arenas for knowledge development and sharing within and between occupational safety and health (OS&H) professionals and researchers.

    One aim of this thesis was to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding about professional skills when it comes to OS&H engineers and ergonomists working within the manufacturing sector. A second aim was to gain experiences of using co-operative inquiry in a learning network for OS&H professionals in order to develop professional skills. The thesis is based on three papers, all with a qualitative research approach. The co-operative inquiry method was used to run a learning network for the research. This network consisted of ten OS&H professionals (engineers and ergonomists) employed at in-house as well as external providers of OHS for manufacturing companies, and two researchers. Everyone in the network acted as co-researchers in accordance with the intention of co-operative inquiry. The dialogues at the meetings were analysed with thematic analysis, using six socio-technical elements as themes.

    The results showed that the OS&H engineers and ergonomists in the network wanted to work more preventively in the future. To achieve this, they expressed needs for both theoretically based arguments and communication skills to convince clients about the benefits with this approach. Research based knowledge, practical experience and good examples were shared and reflected on with the purpose of integrating the new knowledge into daily practice. The dialogues at the meetings dealt mainly with topics at an organisation level rather than details and individual level. The dialogues focused on e.g. co-operation in teams within the OHS firms and with different stakeholders at the client companies, integration of OS&H management into existing processes, participation from early stages in design and change processes, the use of risk assessment tools and, finally, communication skills.

    The co-operative inquiry method was suitable, as the network functioned as an arena for reflective learning.

    Occupational safety and health professionals’ skills – A call for system understanding?: Experiences from a co-operative inquiry within the manufacturing sector2018In: Applied Ergonomics, ISSN 0003-6870, E-ISSN 1872-9126, Vol. 70, p. 279-287Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sector specific skills in occupational safety and health (OS&H) are crucial for being able to contribute to good work environment and decrease today's high levels of sick absences. Large manufacturing companies are due to tradition good at OS&H and can serve as an interesting context for investigating the knowledge level in the area today, and needs for the future. For this purpose a case study was performed in this sector as a co-operative inquiry, including 10 OS&H professionals (engineers and ergonomists) employed at in-house and external occupational health services (OHS). Professional experiences, good examples from practice and current research were shared jointly within the inquiry. The results show needs to work more preventively than today comprehending aspects as system understanding, integrated work teams, participation, a clear role in change projects plus skills in risk assessments. Skills in how to conduct well-functioning dialogues with stakeholders were also on the agenda.

    RAMP – A comprehensive MSD risk management tool2019In: 20th Congress of the International Ergonomics Association, IEA 2018, Springer, 2019, Vol. 820, p. 537-546Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this paper is to describe the development, dissemination and preliminary effects of the use of a new musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) risk management tool for manual handling, RAMP (Risk Assessment and Management tool for manual handling Proactively). RAMP is research based and developed in close collaboration between researchers and practitioners with a participative iterative methodology. A broad strategy is used for the dissemination, including the use of professional networks, conferences, a specially developed homepage, and Massive Open Online Courses which also provide training on the tool use. The tool has been spread widely to about 45 countries since the release 2017. E.g. Scania CV uses RAMP as its global standard method for managing MSD risks at logistics and machining departments. Among the preliminary effects results show that at one department risk reduction measures had been taken for more than 2/3 of the work stations with assessments signalling elevated risk levels after 1.5 years. Further studies on RAMP are discussed. It is concluded that the development and the dissemination of RAMP can be seen as successful. Preliminary reports on the tool use effects indicate that the RAMP tool supports the MSD risk management process in the work to reduce MDS risks at workplaces.

    Verksamhetsnära arbetsmiljöarbete: Nyttiggörande av branschspecifika kunskaper om arbetsmiljöarbete Implementering av nätverk inom verkstadsindustrin och den kommunala hemtjänsten2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är ett FoU projekt om branschspecifika arbetsmiljökunskaper inom verkstadsindustri och kommunala hemtjänst med företagshälsovård i fokus. Branscherna är varandras motsatser när det gäller aspekter som resurser för ledning och styrning av verksamheten, verksamhetsinriktning, traditioner kring systematiskt arbetsmiljöarbete och könsfördelning.

    Projektets övergripande syfte, var att utveckla tre metoder för att samla in, sprida och nyttiggöra branschspecifik kunskap om arbetsmiljöarbete. De tre metoderna är kompetensnätverk, webbportal för utveckling och spridning av branschspecifika kunskaper om arbetsmiljö samt vidareutbildning för yrkesverksamma inom arbetsmiljöområdet.

    Kunskapsutbyten har varit kärnan i kompetensnätverket för verkstadsindustrin, strategier för att möta motstånd och lösa så kallade problemprojekt identifierades. Viktiga aspekter var ett nära samarbete med kundorganisationen och medarbetare i verksamheten, tvärfunktionella projekt och att medverka från start i förändringsprojekt. I anslutning till dessa faktorer efterlystes tydliga stödstrukturer för ett integrerat och proaktivt arbetsmiljöarbete.

    Två orsaker till sjukskrivningar inom hemtjänsten som kompetensnätverkets medforskare lyfte fram var stora arbetsgrupper samt en hög personalomsättning. Vad som sågs som väsentligt för att motverka dessa två faktorer var ökad delaktighet vid resursfördelning och arbetsplanering. Det sågs även som centralt för utvecklingen av arbetsmiljön i denna bransch att identifiera och synliggöra motivatorer till att vara i arbete inom hemtjänsten. Vidare finns ett identifierat behov av en webbportal där information och kunskaper om arbetsmiljö är samlad. Innehållet i vidareutbildningen baseras på identifierade kunskapsbehov som att bedriva ett integrerat och proaktivt arbetsmiljöarbete.

    Den övergripande slutsatsen kring det branschspecifika är att det finns behov av kunskaper i att leda och driva arbetsmiljöarbete och förstå hur organisationen runt den lokala arbetsplatsen fungerar. Detta gäller för båda branscherna och skulle kunna beskrivas i termer av ett mesoperspektiv på arbetsmiljöarbetet, istället för ett microperspektiv.

    WIKIOSH: to develop learning networks about safety and health in the engineering sector2015In: Proceedings 19th Triennial Congress of the IEA, Melbourne 9-14 August 2015, International Ergonomics Association , 2015, p. 1411-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper a network for knowledge sharing is presented. The network turns to safety and health engineers, ergonomists and researchers working in or with the manufacturing industry. The aim with the network is to strengthen and share sector related knowledge on safety and health. The results show a high interest in this kind of network and that the need for knowledge on how to handle complex situations is in focus, and not how to solve specific one dimensional problems.
