Hello Ian Mckenzie!

I have one reference considering your subject:
An evaluation of a weightlifting belt and back
injury prevention training class for airline
baggage handlers, CR Reddell, JJ Congleton,
Huchingson & JF Montgomery, Applied Ergonomics,
1992, 23(5), 319-329.

In this paper there are 29 references. From Texas A&M
University, College Station, TX 77843 you can get
many unpublished doctoral/master's thesis.

When I was studying airline luggage handlers
musculoskeletal stress at work there were many
ramp-men using belts. They said that it supports
during transferring luggage, freight etc.

Good luck for your study!
