Abstract

Remote and mobile workers are individuals who spend most of their working time away from a home or office base. The aim of this study was to evaluate health and wellbeing in this group using a systematic review and a questionnaire survey. The review identified that musculoskeletal symptoms, psychosocial factors and vehicle ergonomics has an impact. The questionnaire survey was affected by a low response rate but identified that both psychological distress and musculoskeletal symptom reporting were high. Relational analysis identified associations between health symptoms, psychological distress, chronic fatigue and contact with managers and colleagues. This should encourage management of this group in relation to both physical and mental health.
