Abstract: This paper examines associations between casual jobs, work schedules, and self-reported musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) among visiting home care workers. This paper builds upon our previous analysis of associations between physical and psychosocial work, work-related injuries, individual factors and MSDs in home care work. Results are based on 674 survey respondents. Results show that neither casual jobs nor work schedules are associated with MSDs; instead stress, physical effort at work, hazards in clients’ homes, work- related injuries, age and money problems are significantly associated factors. Implications of findings are discussed.
