• An investigation into the introduction and implementation of fitness tests within UK ambulance services

      Clarke, V. (2006-04)
      Front line ambulance work can involve a significant amount of physical activity and manual handling, which is often sporadic and varied in nature. Although training in lifting and handling techniques is delivered to all staff, studies suggest that an above average level of physical fitness can further reduce the incidence of sickness and injury at work. https://emj.bmj.com/content/23/4/e31 This is an Open Access article distributed in accordance with the Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial (CC BY-NC 4.0) license, which permits others to distribute, remix, adapt, build upon this work non-commercially, and license their derivative works on different terms, provided the original work is properly cited and the use is non-commercial. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/ http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/emj.2005.032946
