Estimates of the form L A in the range |s − 1| 1/ log R A for general L-functions, where R A is a parameter related to the functional equation of L(s, A), can be quite easily obtained if the Ramanujan hypothesis is assumed. We prove the same estimates when the L-functions have Euler product of polynomial type and the Ramanujan hypothesis is replaced by a(More)
The link between occupation and musculoskeletal disorders has been focused on in numerous research projects, ranging from those simply observing the different pathological findings reported among workers performing particular tasks, down to the latest studies actually quantifying the 'exposure' of workers to physical and psychosocial stimuli. For some(More)

A high percentage of musculoskeletal disorders in nursing staff with the task of patient lifting is reported in the literature. These disorders are considered to be of multiple etiology and attempts have been made not only to assess the physical load but also to identify the direct or indirect influence of organisational and psychosocial factors so that(More)
In occupational medicine, degenerative diseases and malformations of the spine are one of the main reasons for requests for fitness assessment for specific jobs, especially among workers involved in manual handling tasks. By means of a selected review of the specialised literature, the authors identify analysis procedures and precise criteria for assessing(More)
The twenty-year experience of the "Ergonomics of Posture and Movement (epm)" Research Unit for prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) is briefly summarized. The epm research unit is the outcome of an agreement between Milan University (Clinica del Lavoro Luigi Devoto), Milan Polytechnic, Don Gnocchi Foundation IRCCS (Bioengineering(More)
UNLABELLED On the basis of a critical overview of specialised ergonomics literature and of national and international standards on the subjects, this paper outlines the main ergonomic requirements and characteristics for work chairs. The main ergonomic requirements for work chairs are the following: SAFETY the chair should not be the source or cause of(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES In via of the progressive emergence in Italy of work-related musculoskeletal disorders, the EPM Research Unit decided to set up a national working group with the aim of producing a Consensus Document including methods and criteria as an initial attempt towards managing such diseases as true "listed" work-related diseases as is(More)
