A list of all studies that were relevant to this review is in Appendix F. The list is divided into i) those studies which were relevant and of sufficient quality to proceed to data extraction (n=9), and ii) those studies which were relevant but not of sufficient quality to proceed to DE (n=9). Study characteristics can be found in Appendix G, Table G.1. (studies proceeding to DE) and Table G.2 (studies not proceeding to DE). Overall, slightly more studies examining voluntary OHSMSs (n=10) entered QA, compared to those involving mandatory OHSMSs (n=8). However, fewer of the studies of voluntary OHSMSs met the minimum methodological quality to proceed to DE (4 voluntary vs. 5 mandatory) (see Figure 4.1.2).
