Etiology and prevention of work-related disorders

In this theme research related to the etiology and prevention of work-related disorders and occupational diseases is addressed. It focuses on work-related factors, such as infectious/allergic/toxic agents, manual materials handling, computer work, work stress, shift work, or bullying at work, which may cause work-related disorders and occupational diseases.

Criteria guidelines for assessment of the work-relatedness of diseases are developed. The effectiveness of measures to prevent or decrease work-related disorders is investigated. Examples of disorders being studied are occupational dermatitis in hair dressers or health care personnel, and fatigue and metabolic disorders in shift workers.
