Wei Zhang, Huiying Sun, Xin Li
OBJECTIVE: To measure the association between different chronic conditions and non-agricultural work productivity loss among the middle-aged Chinese population. METHODS: We used 2011, 2013 and 2015 data from the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study. The study focused on middle-aged respondents who had the potential to work in the non-agricultural sector. Work productivity loss was measured by non-agricultural work participation and number of absent workdays among those conducting non-agricultural work...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether older workers who follow different work ability (WA) trajectories tend to follow different retirement pathways. METHODS: Nationally representative data on Americans born between 1943 and 1948. Latent class growth modelling to estimate trajectories of work ability between ages 53-54 and 65-66. Multinomial log-linear models to assess the association between WA trajectories and retirement pathways. RESULTS: Three WA trajectories were identified: high (74%), declining (17%) and low (9%)...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of union status on injury risk among a large industrial cohort. METHODS: The cohort included hourly employees at 19 US plants between 2000 and 2007. Plants were classified by union status, and injuries were classified by severity. Cox-proportional hazard shared frailty model was used to determine time to first reportable injury. RESULTS: A total of 26,462 workers were included: 18,955 (72%) unionized and 7507 (28%) non-unionized...

OBJECTIVE: Conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis of the Fuel Your Life (FYL) program dissemination. METHODS: Employees were recruited from three workplaces randomly assigned to one of the conditions: telephone coaching, small group coaching, and self-study. Costs were collected prospectively during the efficacy trial. The main outcome measures of interest were weight loss and quality-adjusted life years (QALYs). RESULTS: The phone condition was most costly ($601-$589/employee) and the self-study condition was least costly ($145-$143/employee)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess cardiorespiratory effects of air pollution in older adults exercising outdoors in winter. METHODS: Adults 55 years of age and older completed daily measurements of blood pressure, peak expiratory flow and oximetry, and weekly measurements of heart rate variability, endothelial function, spirometry, fraction of exhaled nitric oxide and urinary oxidative stress markers, before and after outdoor exercise, for 10 weeks...

: Employers have been challenged by low employee participation rates in health-related programs, and have often relied on incentives and other engagement approaches to overcome this difficulty. One of the apparent barriers to employee engagement in health-related activities is represented by social determinants of health (SDH). According to some, these factors comprise as much as 40% of an individual's health status, and while they have been the focus of attention in the public health domain, their role in the workplace has not been broadly recognized...

OBJECTIVE: To identify organizational factors contributing to workplace violence in hospitals. METHODS: A questionnaire survey was conducted in 2013 among employees in a Midwestern hospital system (n = 446 respondents). Questions concerned employees' experiences of violence at work in the previous year and perceptions of the organizational safety climate. Logistic regressions examined staff interaction and safety climate factors associated with verbal and physical violence, respectively...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize pre-injury prescription opioid and benzodiazepine use and its relationship with post-injury use and missed work among workers. METHODS: 313,543 Washington State Department of Labor and Industries workers' compensation injury claims from 2012-2015 were linked with State Prescription Monitoring Program data. Pre-injury prevalence of opioid and benzodiazepine use were compared between compensable and non-compensable claims, and between workers with and without post-injury prescriptions, using the Pearson Chi-Square test...

: High patient satisfaction is a desirable goal in medical care. Patient satisfaction measures are increasingly used to evaluate and improve quality in all types of medical practices. However, the unique aspects of occupational and environmental medicine (OEM) practice require development of OEM-specific measures and thoughtful interpretation of results. The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine has developed and recommends a set of specific questions to measure patient satisfaction in OEM, designed to meet anticipated regulatory requirements, facilitate quality improvement of participating OEM practices, facilitate case-management review, and offer fair and accurate assessment of OEM physicians...

OBJECTIVE: To introduce the Canadian job-exposure matrix (CANJEM). METHODS: Four large case-control studies of cancer were conducted in Montreal, focused on assessing occupational exposures by means of detailed interviews followed by expert assessment of possible occupational exposures. 31,673 jobs were assessed using a checklist of 258 agents (listed with prevalences at http://expostats.ca/chems). This large exposure database was configured as a JEM. RESULTS: CANJEM is available in four occupational classification systems...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between air pollution and diabetes prevalence in the US, 2002-2008. METHODS: Annual average PM2.5 and ozone concentrations were calculated using daily county-level data from the CDC's Tracking Network. Individual-level outcome and covariate data were obtained from the CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System for 862,519 individuals. We used Poisson regression analyses to examine associations between each air pollutant (per 10-unit increase) with diabetes, including regional sub-analyses...

OBJECTIVE: Stress is pervasive among Latino immigrants. We identified seasonal and occupational patterns in stress among rural Latino immigrants. METHODS: During three agricultural periods, farmworker and non-farmworker participants responded to a 24-item stress questionnaire (Snipes et al.). We measured the associations of stress with occupation, with season, and occupation within season, adjusting for demographic variables. RESULTS: The highest levels of stress were observed in the pre-thinning season when pruning takes place among farmworkers...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the indirect economic burden incurred by patients with primary and secondary hypogonadism (HG) compared to non-HG controls using real-world data. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study using a large US administrative claims database, adult males with primary or secondary HG were selected from 2010-2014. Non-HG controls had no evidence of HG from 2009-2014 and were matched on age, insurance type and geographic region to HG patients. Outcomes included absenteeism and associated costs...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of depressive symptoms on IHR (ill-health retirement). METHODS: Data were collected from the Korean Longitudinal Study of Ageing which conducted biennially from 2006 to 2014. IHR were defined as those who retired due to their health problems. The short-form Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression scale served as outcome measure for definition of depressive symptoms. Hazard ratios of IHR were estimated by Cox regression...

OBJECTIVE: This article describes the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health's (NIOSH) development of a conceptual framework for worker well-being. While well-being research is growing, there is a need to translate theoretical concepts into practical models for measurement and action. METHODS: Multidisciplinary literature reviews informed development of the worker well-being framework and major domains and subdomains. An expert panel helped prioritize constructs for measurement...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether mobile phone text messages could modify objectively measured sedentary behaviour and cardiometabolic health in office workers. METHODS: Nine males and 12 females (mean (SD): 27.5 (5.7) years, 23.8 (2.8) kg/m) were assigned to a control (CON) or intervention (PROMPT) group. PROMPT received an activity-promoting text message during office hours. Participants wore an actiGraph and activPAL accelerometer for 7 days during and after the intervention...
