The formulation of the job fitness assessment for risks associated with repetitive lifting and unloading in healthcare operators involves the evaluation of all those variables that contribute to causing damage to the spine. To this end the authors applied a methodological analysis in two healthcare environments, one medical and the other surgical, which is capable of correlating the results of the MAPO and NIOSH indices with the anamnestic, objective and instrumental data, in order to correctly reintegrate staff into work.
