  1. The independent variables entered to the model in steps are basic background factors (step 1), job-related factors (step 2), individual resources (step 3), and musculoskeletal wellbeing (step 4).
  2. Significance levels: *p < 0.10, **p < 0.05, ***p < 0.01 Regression coefficients shown are beta coefficients.
  3. Dichotomous variable: Sex: Men = 1, women = 2.
