  The present study was conducted to determine the prevalence of mental disorders among shift work hospital nurses in Shiraz. One thousand one hundred and ninety five nurses from 12 general hospitals were investigated by Persian version of General Health Questionnaire-28 (GHQ-28) as screen tool. Using a checklist, structured observations were made to assess working environment. Selecting a score of 6 in GHQ-28 as cut-off point, 45.4% of nurses were found to suffer from mental disorders and this was more common among females. Similarly, anxiety and somatic symptoms were more prevalent than other types of mental disorders (43.2 and 34.5%, respectively). The prevalence of depression and social dysfunction were 11.2 and 79.5%, respectively. Shift work was significantly associated with anxiety (p<0.05). Likewise, marital status was significantly associated with depression and social dysfunction (p<0.001). It was concluded that the mental health pattern in hospital nurses was similar to that of general Iranian population as the referent population. However, the prevalence rates of social dysfunction, somatisation and anxiety symptoms among the nurses were higher than the referent population.

  This study was conducted among workers of an Iranian zinc industry with the objective of determination of the prevalence rate of Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) among production workers. In this study, all 6 production units of the factory were studied. In each unit, 50% of the workers were randomly selected and included in the study. A total of 98 workers participated. The nordic musculoskeletal questionnaire was used as a collecting data tool to study the prevalence of MSDs. The vast majority of the study population (77.6%) had experienced some form of symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders during the last 12 months. The highest prevalence was reported in the lower back (47.9%) and upper back (34.6%). MSDs had occurred with a high rate among zinc workers. Corrective measures for reducing risk level seemed essential. Elimination of awkward postures and manual materials handling in the workplace were recommended.
