The relationship of psychosocial factors and work organization to cumulative trauma disorders of the hands and wrists was investigated among newspaper employees using video display terminals. The study sample included 97 1 employees who wmpleted a questionnaire dealing with demographics, work history, job tasks performed, workstation design and equipment used, and work organization, psychosocial scales, and upper extremity musculoskeletal discomfort. The univariate analyses revealed many signifcant associations between work organization and psychosocial variables and cumulative trauma disorders of the wist and hand. However, the importance of these variables was diminished somewhat in the final logistic regression model where several job task and demographic variables emerged as important predictors of these disorders. Those which remained important in the fial analysis included social support variables and job variance. When the analyses were performed within specific departments, the work organization and psychosocial variables were better predictors of cumulative trauma disorders of the hand and wrist in those departments with a larger number of clerical and data entry video display terminal users. Work organizational and psychosocial variables were not significant factors in the editorial department.
