#1
R Schouteten
BACKGROUND: In determining the predictors of occupational health problems, two factors can be distinguished: personal (work ability) factors and work-related factors (burnout, job characteristics). However, these risk factors are hardly ever combined and it is not clear whether burnout or work ability best predicts absenteeism. AIMS: To relate measures of work ability, burnout and job characteristics to absenteeism as the indicators of occupational health problems...

BACKGROUND: Although psychosocial risk evaluation (PRE) is legally required, implementation is often suboptimal. Occupational health specialists face various challenges in implementing a systematic PRE process. AIMS: To evaluate if a checklist strengthens the competencies of occupational physicians in PRE design and implementation. METHODS: A prospective pilot survey with a baseline and follow-up assessment at 12 months was conducted with occupational physicians who applied the checklist...

J S Boschman, T Brand, M H W Frings-Dresen, H F van der Molen
BACKGROUND: The prevention of occupational diseases is limited by a lack of insight into occupational exposure to risk. We developed a six-step approach to improve the diagnosis and reporting of occupational diseases and the selection of subsequent preventive actions by occupational physicians (OPs). AIMS: To evaluate the effect of the six-step approach on the transparency and quality of assessing occupational diseases and the usability of the six-step approach according to OPs and their satisfaction with it...

J-B Henrotin, M Vaissière, M Etaix, M Dziurla, A Radauceanu, S Malard, D Lafon
BACKGROUND: Recent global economic difficulties have widened social inequalities, but their impact on pregnant workers is not known. AIMS: To investigate the association between deprivation, exposure to occupational hazards and adverse perinatal outcomes in pregnant workers. METHODS: A cross-sectional study performed in 2014 in French occupational health services. Eligible workers were women who had worked during their pregnancy and had a medical visit by occupational health physicians (OHPs) after delivery and at the time of returning to work...

C J Reynolds, S J MacNeill, J Williams, N G Hodges, M J Campbell, A J Newman Taylor, P Cullinan
BACKGROUND: Exposure to respirable crystalline silica (RCS) causes emphysema, airflow limitation and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Slate miners are exposed to slate dust containing RCS but their COPD risk has not previously been studied. AIMS: To study the cumulative effect of mining on lung function and risk of COPD in a cohort of Welsh slate miners and whether these were independent of smoking and pneumoconiosis. METHODS: The study was based on a secondary analysis of Medical Research Council (MRC) survey data...

#6
A Clarner, W Uter, L Ruhmann, N Wrenger, A Martin, H Drexler
BACKGROUND: Psychological first aid is a common approach for providing support after potentially traumatic events (PTEs). In Germany, a peer support model is recommended by the German Statutory Accident Insurance (DGUV) to reduce sickness absence after occupational accidents, especially in public transportation. However, data on the effectiveness of peer support are very sparse. AIMS: To analyse whether peer support has an impact on sickness absence after work-related traumatic events in public transportation...
