Permanent work incapacity, mortality and survival without work incapacity among occupations and social classes: a cohort study of ageing men in Geneva. (1/1702)

BACKGROUND: The objective of this retrospective cohort study was to investigate the burden of disability and death in men, from middle age to age of retirement, among occupational groups and classes in Geneva. METHODS: Men were included if they resided in the Canton of Geneva, were 45 years of age in 1970-1972, and were not receiving a disability pension at the start of the follow-up. The cohort of 5137 men was followed up for 20 years and linked to national registers of disability pension allowance and of causes of death. RESULTS: There was a steep upward trend in incidence of permanent work incapacity with lower social class for all causes as well as for the seven causes of disability studied. Compared with professional occupations (social class I), the relative risk (RR) of permanent work incapacity was 11.4 for partly skilled and unskilled occupations (class IV+V) (95% confidence interval [CI]: 5.2-28.0). The social class gradient in mortality was in the same direction as that in work incapacity although much less steep (RR class IV+V to class I = 1.6, 95% CI : 1.1-2.2). Survival without work incapacity at the time of the 65th birthday ranged from only 57% in construction workers and labourers to 89% in science and related professionals. Unemployment in Geneva was below 1.5% during almost all the study period. CONCLUSIONS: Medically-ascertained permanent work incapacity and survival without work incapacity have shown considerably greater socioeconomic differentials than the mortality differentials.  (+info)

Failing firefighters: a survey of causes of death and ill-health retirement in serving firefighters in Strathclyde, Scotland from 1985-94. (2/1702)

During the decade beginning 1 January 1985, 887 full-time firefighters, all male, left the service of Strathclyde Fire Brigade (SFB). There were 17 deaths--compared to 64.4 expected in the Scottish male population aged 15-54 years--giving a standardized mortality ratio (SMR) of 26, and 488 ill-health retirements (IHR). None of the deaths was attributable to service, the major causes being: myocardial infarction--five, (expected = 17.3; SMR = 29); cancers--three (colon, kidney and lung) (expected = 13.6; SMR = 22); road traffic accidents--two (expected = 4.17; SMR = 48) and suicide--two (expected = 4.9; SMR = 41). Amalgamating the deaths and IHRs showed that the six most common reasons for IHR were musculoskeletal (n = 202, 40%), ocular (n = 61, 12.1%), 'others' (n = 58, 11.5%), injuries (n = 50, 9.9%), heart disease (n = 48, 9.5%) and mental disorders (n = 45, 8.9%). Over 300 IHRs (over 60%) occurred after 20 or more years service. When the IHRs were subdivided into two quinquennia, there were 203 and 302 in each period. Mean length of service during each quinquennium was 19.4 vs. 21.3 years (p = 0.003) and median length was 21 years in both periods; interquartile range was 12-26 years in the first and 17-27 years in the second period (p = 0.002), but when further broken down into diagnostic categories, the differences were not statistically significant, with the exception of means of IHRs attributed to mental disorders (14.5 vs. 19 years, p = 0.03).  (+info)

Sexual harassment and generalized workplace abuse among university employees: prevalence and mental health correlates. (3/1702)

OBJECTIVES: This study hypothesized that interpersonal workplace stressors involving sexual harassment and generalized workplace abuse are highly prevalent and significantly linked with mental health outcomes including symptomatic distress, the use and abuse of alcohol, and other drug use. METHODS: Employees in 4 university occupational groups (faculty, student, clerical, and service workers; n = 2492) were surveyed by means of a mailed self-report instrument. Cross-tabular and ordinary least squares and logistic regression analyses examined the prevalence of harassment and abuse and their association with mental health status. RESULTS: The data show high rates of harassment and abuse. Among faculty, females were subjected to higher rates; among clerical and service workers, males were subjected to higher rates. Male and female clerical and service workers experienced higher levels of particularly severe mistreatment. Generalized abuse was more prevalent than harassment for all groups. Both harassment and abuse were significantly linked to most mental health outcomes for men and women. CONCLUSIONS: Interpersonally abusive workplace dynamics constitute a significant public health problem that merits increased intervention and prevention strategies.  (+info)

Low mortality rates in industrial cohort studies due to selection for work and survival in the industry. (4/1702)

Occupational groups are often described as being relatively healthy because their mortality rates are lower than those of the national average. Although correct this confuses the issue for those who are interested in assessing the effects of exposure to a particular chemical. In a further analysis of data collected in a study of all men ever exposed to vinyl chloride monomer in the manufacture of polyvinyl chloride in Great Britain, three factors have been shown to contribute to the low mortality rates that were observed. The three factors: the selection of a healthy population for employment, the survival in the industry of the healthier men, and the length of time that this population has been pursued, have been quantified. The mortality experience within five years of entering this industry was shown to be as low as 37% of that expected; for circulatory disease and respiratory disease it was as low as 21%. There was a progressive increase in standardized mortality ratio with the length of time since entry so that the effect had almost disappeared 15 years after entry. To avoid confounding the selection effect with the survival effect the latter was measured by separating men who survived 15 years after entering the industry according to whether or not they were still in the industry after this period. Those who had left experienced an overall standardized mortality ratio some 50% higher than those still in the industry. This effect, although consistent in the age groups between 25 and 74 years and for all cause groups studied, was greatest in those aged between 25 and 44 years and for lung cancer and respiratory disease.  (+info)

Adrenosympathetic overactivity under conditions of work stress. (5/1702)

Serial measurements of urinary adrenaline, noradrenaline, and 11-hydroxycorticosteroid excretion were performed on 32 healthy men under two conditions of work stress; piecework and work on assembly line. A statistically significant increase in adrenaline, noradrenaline, and 11-hydroxycorticosteroids was observed for piecework and assembly line workers compared with salaried and 'ordinary' workers. The results support the assumption that psychosocial factors of an everyday type have significant effects on the sympathoadrenomedullary and adrenocortical function.  (+info)

Dynamic strength of the quadriceps muscle and sports activity. (6/1702)

The study objectives were to examine the dynamic strength of the quadriceps muscle in athletes, and investigate its association with participation in sport. The study comprised 168 active competitive non-pregnant athletes, aged 14-24 years. The dynamic strength of their quadriceps muscle was measured, and they answered a questionnaire about sports activity and occupation. The dynamic strength of the quadriceps muscle was significantly higher in men than in women, and was positively associated with body weight, years of jogging, years of soccer, and weekly hours of basketball. In conclusion, the dynamic strength of the quadriceps muscle seems to be associated with sports activity. The results suggest sport specific adaptation, which may reflect high levels of running and jumping activity.  (+info)

An investigation of factors contributing to styrene and styrene-7,8-oxide exposures in the reinforced-plastics industry. (7/1702)

During the manufacturing of reinforced plastics, large amounts of styrene and trace quantities of styrene-7,8-oxide (SO) are released. Since previous work suggests that inhalation of even small amounts of SO might be an important health risk, we investigated several possible factors contributing to styrene and SO exposure during the manufacture of reinforced plastics. Factors related to job type, worker and the type and quantity of styrene-containing resins were investigated using mixed-effects multiple linear regression models. Overall, SO exposure levels were positively correlated with styrene exposure levels. However, this correlation was statistically significant only among hand laminators who had the highest exposures to both styrene and SO. An important factor for predicting both styrene and SO concentrations was the type of resin used, while the quantity of resin consumed was predictive of styrene but not of SO exposure. Since So exposure appears to be associated with factors other than coexposure to styrene, more effort should be placed on investigating emissions of SO per se. The type of mixed-models regression analysis employed in this study can be used for clarifying the underlying patterns for exposures to styrene and SO as well as for evaluating preventive measures.  (+info)

Comparative personal exposures to organic dusts and endotoxin. (8/1702)

The aims of the study were to provide valid comparative data for personal exposures to dust and endotoxins for different occupations and to calculate comparative data for the contamination of organic dusts with endotoxin. Nine different occupational settings were studied, drawn from the textile, agricultural and animal handling industries. Samples were collected by personal sampling techniques, using the Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM) sampling head, glass fibre filters and rechargeable sampling pumps. The dust exposures were calculated by gravimetric analysis and using the calculated volume of air sampled were expressed as mg/m3. Endotoxin exposures were measured using a simple water extraction from the collected dusts, followed by a quantitative turbidimetric assay. Results were expressed as ng/m3, using the calculated volume of air sampled. In addition, the levels of the contamination of dusts with endotoxin for individual industries were expressed as ng/mg of collected dust. Two hundred and fifty-nine samples, collected from 9 different industries and across 36 different sites were analysed. This represented a sampling rate of 25% for the total work force. The average sampling time was 4.62 h. For all the dusts collected, a significant correlation between the collected dust and endotoxin was seen (r = 0.7 and p < 0.001). The highest dust exposures occurred during cleaning activities (grain handling: 72.5 mg/m3). The individuals exposed to the highest median level of dust and endotoxin were the animal handlers (poultry handlers, dust: 11.53 mg/m3, endotoxin: 71,995 ng/m3). Weaving and mushroom cultivation had the lowest exposures for dust and endotoxins. The mostly highly contaminated dusts (median values expressed as ng of endotoxin per mg of collected dust) were found in the animal handling (poultry: 1,030 ng/mg, swine: 152 ng/mg) and cotton spinning (522 ng/mg) industries. Processing of cotton and wool fibres was found to reduce the levels of contamination of dusts with endotoxin. In the study, valid comparative data for personal exposures to organic dusts and endotoxins have been presented. The highest exposures were found amongst animal handlers and during cleaning activities. The results highlight that dust exposures are greater in a number of industries than the set exposure standards. In addition, endotoxin exposures are found to be greater than levels at which harmful effects have been demonstrated.  (+info)

Pope Francis, in his message of April 26, 2015, on the 52nd Day of World Prayer for Vocations states; Responding to Gods call means allowing Him to help us leave ourselves and our false security behind, and to strike out on the path which leads to Jesus Christ, the origin and destiny of our life and our happiness. The Holy Father stresses, The Christian vocation, rooted in the contemplation of the Fathers heart, thus inspires us to solidarity in bringing liberation to our brothers and sisters, especially the poorest. National Vocations Awareness Week is designed to help promote vocation awareness and to encourage young people to ask the question: To what ...
The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is a tool used daily by thousands of people to understand the jobs found throughout Canadas labour market.
The Vocation Identity Questionnaire (VIQ), a 9-item scale, was developed to measure people's sense of calling, the extent to which they find joy and meaning in their life's work, including both paid and unpaid occupations. Criteria were based on Reformation descriptions of vocation supported by studies on intrinsic motivation, flow, perceived significance, and work satisfaction. The VIQ and the Work-Life Questionnaire were administered to 86 faculty and staff at a private California university. Preliminary findings indicate high internal consistency and validity for the VIQ. Implications for future research are discussed in this chapter. Vocation in the Reformation meant more than paid employment within an occupational structure, a category that excludes much of the daily work that sustains a culture. The Vocation Identity Questionnaire (VIQ) was designed to measure this sense of vocation.Keywords: California university; Vocation Identity Questionnaire (VIQ); Work-Life Questionnaire
Blue Collar TV is a television program that aired on The WB with lead actors Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Larry the Cable Guy. The shows humor dealt principally with contemporary American society, and especially hillbilly, redneck, and Southern stereotypes. The show was greenlighted on the heels of the success of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, which the series three lead actors toured with in the early-mid-2000s. It was created by Fax Bahr and Adam Small, in addition to J.P. Williams and Jeff Foxworthy. Blue collar is a US phrase used to describe manual laborers, as opposed to white collar for office or professional workers. Fellow Blue Collar Comedy Tour costar Ron White declined to star on Blue Collar TV due to a fear of being typecast as blue collar. However, he guest-starred on many episodes of the show. On his 2006 comedy album, You Cant Fix Stupid, White jokingly cited his own lack of work ethic as a reason for not participating more on the show. Unlike most sketch comedy programs, ...
I hereby contend that you will never find a source that claims blue collar workers spend 2-3 hours more per day commuting than white collar workers, because I feel quite confident its not true. Actually, I dont think you can find anything that says blue collar workers spend 1 hour more per day. I think you must have read a random paper about a specific industry (construction?) and carelessly extended it out to all blue collar workers, which makes it very, very poor support for your point ...

Not surprisingly, healthcare workers are almost twice as likely to get flu vaccines as those in other occupations. However, fewer than 30 percent of workers in other occupations in frequent contact with the public -- such as food preparation and serving, sales, personal care, and service occupations -- are likely to be vaccinated, according to a study published in the April issue of the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC), the official journal of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).

It is well-documented that people with disabilities have a significantly lower rate of employment than people without disabilities (36% versus 74% according to the 2006 American Community Survey (ACS). Less is known about the types of work they do. Using the occupational classification system within the ACS, researchers explored the prevalence of people with disabilities within occupational groupings and discuss its relationship to occupational growth[1]. Future analysis will address variation across disability groups.. People with disabilities constitute 6.5% of all working-age individuals who are employed in the United States. Chart 1 shows the prevalence of people with disabilities across the occupational groupings. The group management, business, and financial operations has the lowest percentage of people with disabilities (4.4%). Detailed occupational categories can be found in Chart 2..

Knowing an ancestors occupation can help you distinguish him from other individuals with the same name. The records associated with your ancestors occupation could provide information about his life and family. Some occupations are more likely to have records about the people in those occupations than others. There are many records of people in trades, such as bootmakers, tailors, and so on. To learn a trade, an individual had to be apprenticed. Records were usually created of the agreement between the master (the one doing the teaching) and the person (father, guardian) or the organization (parish) placing the apprentice. After learning the trade, the apprentice became a journeyman. A journeyman was an employee who received wages. Master was the level after journeyman. A master was the most skilled craftsman or the owner. Often the craftsmen of the same trade banded together to regulate trade and protect their members interests. The organization they formed was a guild. Those belonging to ...

Without astrological jargon, but on a profound psychological level, the astrologer and psychologist Liz Greene shows the way to a more fulfilled professional life.The Career and Vocation horoscope explores the tension between this inner vocation and everyday work, between the daily service and the existential necessity to do something meaningful.
My new campaign will be extremely gritty, and begin in a very urban setting.Though not necessarily confined to these types of areas, a Vocation I immediately thought of was (pardon my dirty mind)... From crafty courtesan to gigolo to alley-whore, this Vocation encompasses all who seek to pay their lifes wage with their bodies-- certain parts of their bodies, in fact. In general, prost*tutes are disdained by every class-- but their services are used by members of every class (funny, that...). The prost*tutes skills are oriented towards attracting customers, and these can also be useful in the gaining of information. When playing such a persona, some words and phrases to keep in mind are: turning tricks, special skills, divorce mind from body, pimps, madams, no taboos, oldest profession, money. ...
Under the guidance of Alison Wicks, Jessica Malpage and Karen Martin participated in the Berry Mens Shed one day a week for 6 weeks in 2008. The shed experience was part of international fieldwork organised by the University of Western Ontario, Canada at the Australasian Occupational Science Centre at the University of Wollongong, Australia. As they worked alongside the men on their own woodwork projects, Jessica and Karen observed that the shed enables members to socialize while being active and productive. They recognized that the shed is a place where men and women, from different backgrounds can gather to share tools and expertise, acquire new skills and contribute to their community. They also observed that mentoring and learning by doing were key characteristics of the Berry Mens Shed. The following commentary with quotes from the shed participants highlights the benefits of this community‐based, occupation‐focused program for older people.

Yes, despite the deep, deep troubles in the labor market, some occupations have grown since the recession started. Surprisingly, farm, fishing and forestry occupations have seen 12.7% job growth since 2007, the most of any broad occupational category. These gains are probably being driven by the 30% increase in farm…
Aim: Occupational physical activity (OPA), and particularly static postures and physically exerting activities, is known to impact worker health and to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal problems, sickness absence and premature retirement. The exploration of structural preventive measures at the workplace against the adverse health effects of excessive OPA is needed. The psychosocial work environment is hypothesised to buffer the adverse effects of OPA, and as such psychosocial resources might directly influence the performance of OPA. However, this has not been previously investigated with detailed objective measurements. The aim of this study is to describe OPA within blue-collar workers, and to examine the role of psychosocial job resources in the performance of OPA.. Methods: Results are based on a sample of 198 blue-collar workers from the NOMAD (New method for Objective Measurements of physical Activity in Daily living) study, recruited from seven workplaces in ...

We develop a new methodology for quantifying the tasks undertaken within occupations using over 3,000 verbs from more than 12,000 occupational descriptions in the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOTs). Using micro-data from the United States from 1880-2000, we find an increase in the employment share of interactive occupations within sectors over time that is larger in metro areas than non-metro areas. We interpret these findings using a model in which reductions in transport and communication costs induce urban areas to specialize according to their comparative advantage in interactive tasks. We presenting suggestive evidence relating increases in employment in interactive occupations to improvements in transport and communication technologies. Our findings highlight a change in the nature of agglomeration over time towards an increased emphasis on human interaction. ...
Objective - We explored the relationships between inflammatory proteins, occupation, and marital status, and their independent associations with incidence of cardiovascular disease ( CVD). Methods and Results - Five inflammation-sensitive proteins ( ISPs) ( fibrinogen, ceruloplasmin, haptoglobin, alpha 1-antitrypsin, orosomucoid) were measured in 6075 apparently healthy men. Incidence of coronary events and stroke was followed over 18 years in relation to occupation and marital status. All ISPs showed higher concentrations in divorced men and in manual workers. Except for fibrinogen, this remained significant after adjustments for confounding factors. Adjusted for traditional cardiovascular risk factors, incidence of coronary events was significantly increased in unskilled manual workers and in divorced men. The relative risks were slightly reduced after further adjustments for ISPs ( from 1.79 to 1.70 in unskilled manual workers; from 1.58 to 1.51 in divorced men). All ISPs were significantly ...
I dont think its true. If priests actually taught what was in store for folks that werent open to breeding, Im sure the laity would be much more receptive to breeding. It worked for me.. I, recently, heard a talk on EWTN radio about the concept of vocation. The zeroth-order vocation of every person is union with God in Heaven. The primary vocation is to marriage, priesthood, or vowed religious life. Being single is not a primary vocation, but a secondary one. In theory, it should be put at the service of the primary vocations. In theory, single people should be helping the married people by watching their kids, they should be helping the priests by doing the grunt work around the parish, and they should be helping the religious by doing the same at their convents and monasteries. I am sure that it would be a great relief to have a mature baby-sitter for some parents to watch the kids or people who will clean the church for free. Single people should be trained in apologetics, because ...
The species representation shows that the exploitation during the formation of units 114 and 115 at El Mazo was focused on three taxa (the top shell P. lineatus, the limpets of the Patella genus and the sea urchin P. lividus), whilst the rest of the taxa were collected in limited amounts (Table 2). The predominance of limpets and top shells has been previously recorded in other Mesolithic shell midden sites in northern Iberia, located either in the Asturian area, such as Mazaculos II (Gutiérrez-Zugasti and González-Morales 2010), La Llana (Gutiérrez-Zugasti 2009), Poza lEgua (Arias et al. 2007), El Toral III (Bello-Alonso et al. 2015) and unit 108 from El Mazo (García-Escárzaga et al. 2015), or in other parts of the Cantabrian region, such as La Garma A (Álvarez-Fernández 2013), El Truchiro (Álvarez-Fernández et al. 2013), La Trecha and La Fragua (Gutiérrez-Zugasti 2009).

TY - JOUR. T1 - Contextual Understanding of Lower Fertility Among U.S. Women in Professional Occupations. AU - Shreffler, Karina M.. PY - 2017/1/1. Y1 - 2017/1/1. N2 - Despite decades of research indicating that employed women in the United States have fewer children than other women, it remains unclear what it is about work, beyond work hours, that constrains fertility. The current study links a sample of 1,800 women of childbearing age who are employed at least part-time from the National Survey of Fertility Barriers with the Department of Labors Occupational Information Network to examine how characteristics of womens jobs are associated with their fertility intentions and behaviors. Results indicate that women who work in more professional jobs (e.g., occupations with greater prestige, autonomy, complexity, and supervisory characteristics) are more likely to postpone childbearing than women employed in jobs with lower scores on professional characteristics. Women in more professional jobs ...
Objectives: To investigate the association between occupational social class and cardiovascular disease (CVD) incidence, and the extent to which classical and lifestyle risk factors explain such relationships, and if any differences persist after 65 years of age. Design, Setting and Participants: Prospective population study of 22,478 men and women aged 39-79 years living in the general community in Norfolk, United Kingdom, recruited using general practice age-sex registers in 1993-1997 and followed up for total mortality to 2006. Main results: In both men and women an inverse relationship was observed between social class and CVD incidence, with a relative risk of social class V compared to I of 1.90 in men (95% CI 1.47 to 2.47, P | 0.001) and 1.90 in women (95% CI 1.45 to 2.49, P | 0.001). Adjusting for classical and lifestyle risk factors (age, smoking, BMI, systolic blood pressure, total blood cholesterol, history of diabetes, physical activity, weekly alcohol intake and plasma vitamin C levels) had

The Cessnock Skills Audit showed there would be a shortage of health workers in the Hunter Valley region in the next two years.. Current shortage and future need were indicated in a range of health professional occupations. All health professional occupations represented in this section require a bachelors degree or higher level of education, with most also requiring internships and/or practical placements within facilities that offer the breadth and level of experience required to meet professional accreditation. Current skill shortages therefore must be met from outside the LGA.. Attracting suitably qualified and experienced health professionals is a challenge faced in most regional areas in Australia.. The Hunter Region is Australias largest regional economy[1]. It is home to over 600,000[2] residents and 48,500 business[3] and has an economic output of over $41 billion[4]. The Hunter is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia, with the Lower Hunter (2016 population 555,200) being a ...

Overall obesity prevalence was 24.6% (95% confidence interval [CI], 24.0-25.1). Workers in protective services were 2.46 (95% CI, 1.72-3.50) times as likely to be obese as workers in health diagnosing occupations. Compared with their counterparts, workers who consumed adequate amounts of fruits and vegetables and had adequate LTPA were significantly less likely to be obese (PR = 0.91; 95% CI, 0.86-0.97 and PR = 0.63; 95% CI, 0.60-0.67, respectively). Workers with physically demanding occupational physical activity had a lower PR of obesity (PR = 0.83; 95% CI, 0.78-0.88) than those with nonphysically demanding occupational physical activity ...
Methods: Based on methodology from a study in the USA using the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (Steeves et al., 2015), accelerometer-derived variables were computed from the Health Survey for England 2008. For each of the 25 sub-major groups of the Standard Occupational Classification 2000, the following variables were derived: total activity counts/day, activity counts/min, proportion of wear-time in SB, light PA, lifestyle PA and moderate-to-vigorous PA. The sum of the ranks of these variables was used to create a summary score for each occupational category: this score was ranked to establish categories with low, intermediate and high OA ...
Performers with disabilities in the entertainment industry in Southern California have been working together as a cohesive force for change, challenging deeply embedded cultural ideals of beauty and bodily perfection. This study is based on interviews with a cohort of adults with disabilities employed in film and television. Their narratives suggest that some occupations are transformative, in the sense of providing an overriding meaning and purpose in the life of these individuals and their community. For the participants in this study, acting -- or performance, more generally -- is a transformative occupation. Interviews with performers with disabilities show the dedication, persistence, adaptiveness and creativity that such a valued transformative occupation will inspire. The findings from this study provide evidence of the potential for transformative occupations to changes peoples lives while also transforming society. This study examines six key strategies that performers with disability ...

A study examined the extent to which college students differentially evaluated women in traditional, nontraditional, and unspecified occupations. It also investigated whether sex-role identification was a variable moderating the attitudes of students toward the kinds of occupations women selected. The Situational Attitude Scale for Women in Occupations and the Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI) were administered to 124 freshman university students. Students were classified as masculine sex-typed males, feminine sex-typed females, androgynous, or undifferentiated, using the BSRI. Data analyzed using two-way analysis of variance of occupational designation (form) and sex-role identification (role) yielded 18 items significantly different on role, 12 significantly different on form, and 4 significantly different on interaction of role and form. Results indicated women identified with nontraditional occupations were viewed less favorably than women identified with traditional occupations.

Cedefops forecasts give insights on job opportunities between now and 2025 (Figure 3). Total job opportunities are the sum of newly created jobs (expansion demand) and job opportunities arising because of the need to replace people who either go on to other jobs or leave the labour market, for example due to retirement (replacement demand). Often, replacement demand provides more job opportunities than expansion demand, which means that there will still be job opportunities even if the overall level of employment falls. Despite creating new jobs, Italys ageing workforce and occupational mobility means that, between now and 2025, replacement demand in Italy is forecast to provide almost six times more job opportunities than expansion demand.. In Italy, most job opportunities, around 22% will be for professionals (high level occupations in science, engineering healthcare, business and teaching), followed by around 17% for technicians and associate professionals (occupations applying scientific ...

Background Population-based studies of the occupational contribution to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease generally rely on self-reported exposures to vapours, gases, dusts and fumes (VGDF), which are susceptible to misclassification. Aims To develop an airborne chemical job exposure matrix (ACE JEM) for use with the UK Standard Occupational Classification (SOC 2000) system. Methods We developed the ACE JEM in stages: (i) agreement of definitions, (ii) a binary assignation of exposed/not exposed to VGDF, fibres or mists (VGDFFiM), for each of the individual 353 SOC codes and (iii) assignation of levels of exposure (L; low, medium and high) and (iv) the proportion of workers (P) likely to be exposed in each code. We then expanded the estimated exposures to include biological dusts, mineral dusts, metals, diesel fumes and asthmagens. Results We assigned 186 (53%) of all SOC codes as exposed to at least one category of VGDFFiM, with 23% assigned as having medium or high exposure. We assigned ...
The Infant Feeding Survey in 2011 showed that most mothers (94%) reported that they took folic acid either before or during pregnancy. More than a third (37%) said they took folic acid before they were pregnant, increasing to 79% who reported taking it during the first three months of pregnancy, while 23% took it later on in pregnancy. However, for women who had never worked uptake was 82% during pregnancy and 15% prior to pregnancy. The survey also shows that 60% of mothers in Scotland took some form of vitamin or mineral supplements (apart from folic acid by itself) during their pregnancy. Across the UK there was variation in uptake e.g. 71% of mothers from managerial and professional occupation groups took some form of dietary supplements compared with 59% of mothers from routine and manual occupations and 58% of those who had never worked. Younger mothers were less likely to have taken supplements during pregnancy than older mothers (54% of mothers aged under 20 compared with 68% of mothers ...
Occupational and environmental exposures may contribute to the risk of developing sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). To summarize the available evidence, a systematic review of the literature on occupation as a potential determinant of ALS was performed according to the MOOSE guidelines. From MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, and Cochrane databases, selected ... read more studies were methodologically appraised according to Armons classification system for ALS risk factor studies. Each occupation studied was reclassified according to the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO-88). The vote-counting method was applied to summarize the data. Of 3773 potentially relevant studies, 51 were initially included. Of these, 12 studies provided risk estimates for individual occupations--one case-control, two register-based case-control, and nine register-based cohort studies. All studies fell into Armons level of evidence class IV, indicating methodological limitations. Due to the ...
This message when given in 1948 at the Mount Kuling Conference Center near Foochow, China was a timely one, in view of a special situation then existing in China which seriously needed to be addressed on behalf of the Christians there. The same, however, may not be entirely or even partially applicable to the believers living within Western social and economic systems. The reader himself must judge. Yet the underlying principle advanced by the author in his message is nonetheless worthy of consideration; for although economic systems may indeed differ and local situations may doubtless vary, the basic points enunciated here can be of great help to those who seek to be led by the Spirit of God in choosing their occupations. Translator 1. Occupations Sanctioned in the Bible The occupation of a Christian is a major consideration in life. If he or she chooses the wrong occupation, that person will be hampered in his or her progress in the Lord. Hence a Christian must be careful in the choice of ...

Mesothelioma is primarily caused by a long history of high-dose asbestos exposure, which most commonly occurred at industrial jobsites prior to the 1980s.
Over the 2008-2010 period, employment growth in this occupation was much faster than the average for all occupations. The increase in the average hourly wage was on par with the overall average. However, the average hourly wage in this occupation was low in relation to comparable occupations. In spite of everything, the unemployment rate increased slightly over this period, but remained relatively low in 2010 at 3.5%. According to key labour market indicators, the number of job seekers was sufficient to fill job openings in this occupation.. Over the 2011-2020 period, an occupation will be in excess demand (a shortage of workers) if the projected number of job openings is significantly greater than the projected number of job seekers. An occupation will be in excess supply (a surplus of workers) if the projected number of job openings is smaller than the projected number of job seekers.

A detailed cause of death analysis involving 160 causes was published for each of these categories. A compari
5:51 pm During times of crisis, a point of structural weakness becomes glaringly visible and vulnerable. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a spotlight on the inequities that exist in this country when it comes to health and well-being. The importance of the social determinants of health is more apparent than ever.. As concerns grew about the virus spreading, the predominant proportion of white collar workers could storm the grocery stores and then settle in for the long haul in front of their laptops. Meanwhile, blue collar workers began losing jobs and health protection, or were forced to work in hazardous conditions, constantly at risk of exposure to the virus. Available data is making clear the socioeconomic divide that COVID-19 has laid bare. In New York City, the bottom income quadrant accounts for 36 percent of all coronavirus cases in the city while the top quadrant accounts for just 10 percent.. Those who have no choice but to risk exposure in order to receive a paycheck, or conduct daily ...
Considered to be the Golden Egg of income protection and also the disability benefits of critical illness cover, Own Occupation cover is more likely to result in a successful claim.. What does it mean and why is it so much better?. Cover that is based on an individuals own occupation will quite simply pay a valid claim if any sickness or injury prevents that person from being able to do THEIR OWN JOB.. The reason for referring to a valid claim is because, if an applicant doesnt disclose all the facts when they apply, a claim could be refused.. An example of own occupation cover at work would be something like a banker suffering from a lengthy bout of depression. Their doctor might sign them off work and if they have some income protection set up on an own occupation basis then a valid claim will be paid.. Its a little different for the disability benefits of critical illness cover because they refer to total & permanent disability so a policy holder need to be signed off work for good ...
Social differentiation in leisure time-use patterns has been found in many developed countries with long-standing capitalist traditions. Thus far, however, little is known about the countries with relatively younger capitalist economies, such as post-socialist nations in Central and Eastern Europe, where, until recently, social inequality has not been significant in magnitude. This study employs time-use data for Poland to examine the relationship between social class characteristics and four dimensions of leisure: duration; fragmentation; diversity of activities; and complexity of time-use sequences. The results demonstrate that respondents occupation and education have a significant effect on all of these parameters. Much of the effect of occupational characteristics, however, is explained by differences in leisure duration, which seems to be the main cause of differences in leisure dynamics across occupational categories. Nevertheless, the variety of leisure activities, associated primarily ...
The survey found that while poverty and limited education are conditions that push women into sex work, poverty pushes women into other labour markets at earlier ages than in sex work. Therefore, sex work cannot be considered as singular or isolated in its links with poverty, as other occupations are pursued before sex work emerges or is considered as an option, the researchers said. Sex work may also be regarded as offering a significant supplementary income to other forms of labour. Many of those surveyed also worked in diverse occupations in the unskilled manufacturing or services sector for extremely poor wages ...
It is also the case that economic opportunities in high-skill labor markets are among the key determinants of the career decisions made by the native-born student population. The increase in the number of foreign doctorates has clearly reduced economic opportunities in some fields relative to others, and may be an important factor driving native students to enter particular occupations and avoid others. For example, the wage that could be earned by native postdoctoral workers employed in research biology labs is much lower than it would have been in the absence of the immigrant influx, perhaps motivating bright U.S.-born undergraduates to pursue professional occupations that have not been targeted by immigration. The low wage paid to postdoctoral workers in these biology labs, however, still offers a very attractive opportunity when contrasted to the compensation available in other countries, so that the incentives for even more foreign students to enter the United States are not greatly ...
The International Skilled Worker - Occupations In-Demand sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) reopened for 500 new applications on January 4, 2017. This SINP sub-category allows skilled workers with experience in an in-demand occupation to make an application for a provincial nomination certificate, which is then followed by an application for Canadian permanent residence. Interestingly, applicants do not require a job offer in order to make an application.. This is a base sub-category, meaning that it is not aligned with the federal Express Entry immigration selection system. Consequently, it is possible that individuals who are not eligible for Express Entry (for example, because of language ability) - as well as individuals who are eligible for Express Entry but who have so far not received an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence - may be eligible. Among other eligibility requirements, applicants must be highly-skilled in an in-demand occupation in the ...

PRIESTS in the Catholic Church are either diocesan or religious. Both types of priests have the same priesthood faculties, acquired through ordination by a bishop. Diocesan priests commit their lives to serving the people of a diocese, a church administrative region, and generally work in parishes, schools, or other Catholic institutions as assigned by the bishop of their diocese. Religious priests belong to a religious order, such as the Jesuits, Dominicans, or Franciscans. Religious priests receive duty assignments from their superiors in their respective religious orders. Both diocesan and religious priests hold teaching and administrative positions in Catholic seminaries, colleges and universities, and high schools. ...
