The report from the Winternet Research and Education Centre, on which this summarizing document is largely based, is the third in a series of studies funded by the MSB and the former Swedish Rescue Services Agency (SRSA). It is pleasing that we have taken a further step forward in developing test procedures to measure the strength appropriate to the most strenuous job operations. The model represents a useful aid to individual physical training. At the same time, we can be clear that according to the latest study the requirement for physical strength has been set high. Many of those tested, today working as firemen, did not achieve the “pass” level in the study. This provides us with further arguments for taking the next step forward. We cannot just accept that a number of tasks today are onerous. We must drive research forward in order to develop new tools and methods, and the modern technology that is already available must be used by the rescue services. It is something that everyone gains from. One result will be a more efficient rescue service, another will be a reduction in the risk of firemen sustaining occupational injuries.
