Under-reporting of occupational diseases is a problem globally. As an example the under-reporting rate of musculo-skeletal diseases in 10 regions of France was estimated at 59% for CTS, 73% for elbow MSD, 69% for shoulder MSD, and 63% for lumbar spine MSD [1]. Several methods can be used to solve this problem. It would be an excellent training for students to do a systematic review in the scientific articles to establish systematic registration of work related diseases(report in English or Spanish) add the report here and in the Archive.
