The Occupational Physicians Reporting Activity (OPRA) surveillance scheme for occupational physicians has now been in place for 4 years. During this period, an estimated 43,764 new cases of work-related disease have been reported. Musculoskeletal conditions make up nearly half (49%) of all cases; mental ill-health and skin disease account for 20% each, with respiratory conditions (8%) and hearing
The official study by the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) based on the data of 2018 has not revealed any cases of occupational diseases at the Uralasbest plant, which is confirmed by an official study document recently published on the Rosportrebnadzor website.. Rospotrebnadzor experts have reviewed the statistics of all enterprises of the Sverdlovsk region for 9 months of 2019, and have concluded that the level of occupational diseases in the region is steadily decreasing. Manufacturing industry enterprises have the highest number of occupational disease cases. The smelting industry takes the first place in the number of occupational diseases (65.2%); the second place is divided between production of other non-metallic products, repair and installation of machinery and equipment, production of other vehicles and equipment (8.6% each); production of finished metal products and manufacturing of machinery and equipment ...
For 18 months (1983-84), a pilot program was set up to promote the reporting of occupational disease by physicians to a local health agency. The objectives of the program were to increase the awareness among physicians of occupational disease in their practice, assist physicians in the diagnosis and management of the cases, and to provide a mechanism for public health intervention in hazardous working conditions. After discussions with leaders in the medical community, the program was initiated by a letter from the State Health Commissioner to physicians in the pilot county. A single-page reporting form was included with the letter. A bimonthly newsletter to primary care physicians was also begun. Additional educational activity included presentation of grand rounds and a one-day medical conference on the recognition of occupational disease at the single hospital in the county. All physicians reporting occupational disease received copies of all industrial hygiene reports as well as relevant ...

The aim of this study is to investigate the associations between work exposure such as psychosocial work factors and work posture, and health in men and women with the same type of occupation in the manufacturing industry. Two follow-ups with a follow-up rate of 67% from the WOrk, Lipids and Fibrinogen (WOLF) cohort from the Northern Sweden were used. The database included 1589 men and 286 women, which is representative of the proportions between men and women in the Swedish manufacturing industry. To be able to understand the importance of work context, the participants were categorized according to work tasks (working with things or symbols). Logistic regression was used for interaction analyses between sex and psychosocial work factors (such as demand, control, social support, role conflict, and work-family conflict) as well as physical work factors (such as work posture), and health outcomes (work overcommitment, fatigue, and neck and back pain). The results showed contextually different ...

The novel coronavirus has been rapidly spreading worldwide, affecting everyones lives more than wed have expected - from stress and anxiety, having to practice social distancing and therefore isolate inside the house to the illness itself. And its with good reason that most people are concerned about it, as the disease can have serious complications and even become deadly for the ones who find themselves being in the groups with a high risk.. For former industrial workers, the risks of developing severe complications if infected with COVID-19 are high, especially if they have been exposed to various toxins that could have potentially damaged their lungs and left them with respiratory diseases. One of the most common work-related diseases is asthma, the occupational development of it accounting for 15% of adult on-set cases, followed by COPD that can develop from the inhalation of fumes, dust, and gasses. Industrial workers are also at risk of developing pneumoconiosis as a result of exposure ...
Work-related stress is widely recognized as one of the major challenges to occupational health and safety. The correlation between work-related stress risk factors and physical health outcomes is widely acknowledged. This study investigated socio-demographic and occupational variables involved in perceived risk of work-related stress. The Italian version of the Health and Safety Executive Management Standards Indicator Tool was used in a large survey to examine the relationship between work-related stress risks and workers demographic and occupational characteristics. Out of 8,527 questionnaires distributed among workers (from 75 organizations) 6,378 were returned compiled (74.8%); a set of mixed effects models were adopted to test single and combined effects of the variables on work-related stress risk. Female workers reported lower scores on control and peer support and more negative perceptions of relationships and change at work than male workers, most of them with full-time contracts. Age, job

That will also mean that family physicians will have to reflect systematically on questions like: Are these health problems work-related? If so, is that relationship causal, which means that work causes occupational and work-related diseases such as chronic low back pain or aggravates existing health problems like COPD? Or is the health condition causal? What are the consequences of a disease or treatment (for e.g. asthma, myocardial infarction or diabetes) for the patients work? Can the working conditions be adapted to the limited capabilities of a worker with multiple sclerosis or a worker who survived cancer but is still having complaints? Where can I get reliable occupational health information on effects of pesticides or on risk factors for epicondylitis?

RESULTS: The themes that emerged told a story about Sudbury. There is awareness of occupational exposures, but this awareness is dwarfed in comparison to the attention that is given to the tragic fatal injuries from injuries and accidents. The mines are now owned by foreign multinationals with a change from an engaged, albeit paternalistic sense of responsibility for the health of the miners, to a less responsive or sympathetic workplace culture. Modernization has led to the elimination, substitution, or reduction of some of the worst toxins, and hence present-day miners are less exposed to hazards that lead to occupational disease than they were in the past. However, modernization and the drop in the price of nickel has also led to a precipitous reduction in the number of unionized miners, a decline in union power, a decline in the monitoring of present-day exposures, and an increase in non-unionized contract workers. The impact has been that miners have lost their solidarity and power to ...

Since the original establishment of the ILO List of Occupational Diseases in 1925 (C18) with 3 occupational diseases [13], the list has played a key role in harmonizing the development of policies on occupational diseases and in promoting their prevention at the international level. The ILO List of Occupational Diseases has been updated continually, reflecting changes in the structure of modern industry and the scientific advancement of occupational medicine. In addition, as an agreement of the tripartite meetings and approved results of the International Labour Conference, the ILO list of occupational disease should have been in the common territory of workers, employers, and governments. Until C121 was revised in 1980, the ILO List of Occupational Diseases had been an appended schedule for a workers compensation scheme, in which the included items were limited. Since R194, the ILO List has changed to a focus on prevention, recording, and reporting of occupational diseases by expanding its ...
Occupational Disease Attorneys in Staten Island. The last thing an employee wants to worry about is developing an occupational disease while on the job due to actions outside of their control. Occupational Diseases arent limited to serious illness such as cancer. They can be defined as any ailment that is caused by any work related activity in their specific field. For example, Lead Poisoning, Asbestosis, Silicosis, GERD, Asthma, Chronic Rhinitis are just examples of typical Occupational Disease claims from our construction employee clients. Whether an illness is known as an occupational disease really does depend on the type of illness. If a sickness were to be classified as an occupational disease, the compensation would fall under the workers compensation insurance that most employers in New York must have. Your employers workers compensation insurance will protect you and provide medical & indemnity (cash) benefits for lost income. Insurance carriers and employers often fight ...
According to the North Carolina General Statutes, occupational diseases covered by workers compensation are diseases caused by conditions that are characteristic with a particular trade or occupation, but excluding ordinary diseases of life to which the general public is equally exposed outside of the employment. For example, if a worker, whose job was a paint sprayer for many years, has lung damage due to him breathing a specific chemical in the paint, he would probably have an occupational disease. However, an office worker who happens to develop a lung disease that is common to the everyday public would probably not have a compensable occupational disease under workers compensation.. The list of occupational diseases is listed in North Carolina General Statute 97-53. There are presently twenty eight specific diseases listed in this section. Common examples of potential occupational diseases include, but are not limited to, mercury poisoning, asbestosis, anthrax, arsenic poisoning, and ...
Nickel is an essential trace metal used in the occupational setting, resulting in both occupational and nonoccupational exposures to individuals at varying levels. Exposure to nickel has been associated with several toxicities and the International Agency for Research on Cancer has concluded that there is sufficient evidence in humans associating exposure to nickel compounds with risk of lung cancer and sinonasal cancer. This study confirmed a significant excess of mortality from diseases of the lung including silicosis, lung cancer, and cor pulmonale among workers involved in nickel mining or smelting in China ...

This report focuses on occupational disease reports from 2009 and 2008, and recent trends in reported cases. It does not address traumatic occupational injuries, which are addressed in the annual report on occupational injuries and illnesses by the Connecticut Department of Labor (http://www.ctdol.state.ct.us/osha/shstats.htm). Occupational diseases are typically harder to detect than injuries, since they often occur over longer periods of time, and can have multiple (including non-occupational) risks. Therefore, this report uses data from three primary sources as a way of establishing a more complete picture of occupational disease: Workers Compensation First Report of Injury cases (WCC), physicians reports under the Occupational Illnesses and Injury Surveillance System (OIISS), and the Bureau of Labor Statistics/Conn-OSHA Annual Survey.

Objectives This study assessed the validity of self-reported physical work load by questionnaire and logbook against task analysis and observation. It also investigated factors (job type and low-back or neck pain) affecting the self-assessment of physical work load and compared the assessments between the questionnaire and the logbook.. Methods A self-administered questionnaire including 10 questions (ordinal scales) on physical work load and musculoskeletal symptoms was filled out by 2756 men in the forest industry. From this population, 36 men were selected for task analysis and observation. Logbooks including 10 continuous variables were analyzed for 386 men.. Results The Spearman rank correlation coefficients between the self-assessments and observations for the frequency of manual handling, duration of trunk flexion, neck rotation, hand above shoulder level, and squatting or kneeling ranged between 0.42 and 0.55. The correlation coefficients for the questionnaire items were higher in ...

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, ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate musculoskeletal and psychosocial perception and compare these conditions regarding the type of job (white or blue-collar) and the type of management model (private or public). Forty-seven public white-collar (PuWC), 84 private white-collar (PrWC) and 83 blue-collar workers (PrBC) were evaluated. Job Content Questionnaire (JCQ) and Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES) were applied to evaluate psychosocial factors. Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire (NMQ) was used to assess musculoskeletal symptoms. Pressure Pain Threshold (PPT) was measured to evaluate sensory responses. According to JCQ, all groups were classified as active profile. There was a significant association between work engagement and workers categories (p | 0.05). PrWC workers had the highest scores for all the UWES domains, while PrBC had the lowest ones. PPT showed that PrBC workers had an increased sensitivity for left deltoid (p | 0.01), and for both epicondyles (p | 0.01), when compared to the

The occupational safety and health authority must always be notified of serious occupational accidents and occupational diseases. Occupational accident notifications are the responsibility of the employer, while notifications on suspected occupational diseases and work-related illnesses will be submitted by a physician.. ...

People, who perform works that are associated with potential risk for the health of other people must undergo mandatory health checks.
