Troubles musculosquelettiques et risques psychosociaux dans une population de conducteurs ambulanciers hospitaliers

Abstract : Purpose of the study: The aim of our study was to determine the prevalence of MSDs and PSR in a driver-ambulance population working in a public medical center, and to assess potential links between them. Method: We studied a population of 65 agents, using a questionnaire from the INRS Guide to Good Practices. General characteristics of subjects, MSD-related complaints, work experience and potential factors for PSR were examined. Results: Sixty-one of 65 agents have participated in the study. More than three-quarters of the agents have MSD-related symptoms. More than two thirds of the agents report at least one painful episode per week and more than 90% at least once a month. The most frequently encountered disorders are low back pain, alleged by almost three quarters of the agents, followed by neck pain which affects a third of the agents, then shoulders for 20% of the agents. Almost 80% of paramedics say they must work fast "sometimes or often", and almost three-quarters report being "often" subject to time constraints. Almost 9 out of 10 subjects feel they can "rarely" modulate the amount of work they do, and two thirds "never". Less than half of the officers can count on or even discuss easily with their superiors, while more than three-quarters can do so with their colleagues. Discussion: The association between physical and psychological demands suggests that the appearance of musculoskeletal disorders in hospital ambulance drivers is highly impacted by the presence of psychosocial risks.
