Abstract [en]

Good physical, psychological and social health is pursued both at work and at home. There is no current research into the health of ski instructors despite the physically demanding nature of skiing and high injury rate. The purpose of this study is to map out ski instructors physical and psychological health and see if there are common injuries amongst them. This study is a descriptive and correlating study including a survey of ten questions with self reported data from the instructors. Five ski schools from Sweden participated in the study and 86 surveys got sent out to the ski school directors.

The result from this study shows that ski instructor´s physical, physiological, well being at work, stress level and self efficacy is good. Fifty-eight percent of the ski instructors got injured while working but they got injured less than the average skier, most common injuries was in

the knee. It was not possible to perform a correlation analysis between low self efficacy (SE) and increased injury rate due to all instructors rating their SE to seven or higher on a zero to ten scale. This can be counted as high SE. The difference analysis for physical activity and injury rate gave the chi square results: Chi2 = 0,92, df = 1, p > 0,05. Thus the null hypothesis cannot be rejected.
