Software departments of companies that exist for several decades often have to deal with legacy models. Important business assets have been modelled with tools that are no longer preferred within the company. Manually remodelling these models with a new tool would be too costly. In this paper, we describe an approach to migrate from Rhapsody...

There is little evidence with respect to the effectiveness of intervention programs that focus on the reduction of occupational quartz exposure in the construction industry. This article evaluates the effectiveness of a multidimensional intervention which was aimed at reducing occupational quartz exposure among construction workers by increasing...

Objectives: Evaluate the process of an intervention in the construction industry to reduce quartz exposure. Methods: In a cluster randomized controlled trial, data on seven process aspects (ie, recruitment, reach, dose delivered, dose received, fidelity, satisfaction, and context) were quantitatively collected on manager and worker levels....

Voor veel mensen is een stad de plek om te wonen. Een stad biedt werk, vertier, recreatie en sociale cohesie. Woonruimte en leefruimte dus. Dat is al eeuwen zo. In de toekomst zal een vitale stad nog meer een stad van verbindingen zijn. Met als resultaat: veilig verkeer zonder congestie, ongeevenaarde luchtkwaliteit en een circulaire economie....

Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of the Advanced REACH Tool (ART) by (i) studying interassessor agreement of the resulting exposure estimates generated by the ART mechanistic model, (ii) studying interassessor agreement per model parameters of the ART mechanistic model, (iii) investigating assessor characteristics...

Objectives: A multidisciplinary intervention study aimed at reducing quartz exposure in the Dutch construction industry was performed. We aimed to assess the effect of the intervention on exposure level and psycho-social and organisational factors. Method: Eight participating construction companies were randomly allocated to an intervention (n =...

Background: Occupational quartz exposure continues to be a serious hazard in the construction industry. Until now, evidence-based interventions aimed at reducing quartz exposure are scarce. The aim of this study was to systematically develop an intervention and to describe the study to evaluate its effectiveness. Methods/design: The intervention...

This paper describes a Bayesian model for the assessment of inhalation exposures in an occupational setting; the methodology underpins a freely available web-based application for exposure assessment, the Advanced REACH Tool (ART). The ART is a higher tier exposure tool that combines disparate sources of information within a Bayesian statistical...

Quartz exposure can cause several respiratory health effects. Although quartz exposure has been described in several observational workplace studies, well-designed intervention studies that investigate the effect of control strategies are lacking. Tis article describes a baseline exposure study that is part of a multidimensional intervention...

A multidimensional intervention study was performed in order to reduce personal quartz exposure in the Dutch construction industry. The intervention study focused on increasing the use of technical control measures (properly) by targeting organizational and behavioral factors. We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention.

Background: In order to make full use of the opportunities while responsibly managing the risks of working with manufactured nanomaterials (MNM), we need to gain insight into the potential level of exposure to MNM in the industry. Therefore, the goal of this study was to obtain an overview of the potential MNM exposure scenarios within relevant...

OBJECTIVES: It is not yet clear whether dietary protein could help maintaining a healthy blood pressure (BP). We investigated the association between total protein intake, estimated from 24-h urinary urea excretion, and incident hypertension in Dutch men and women. METHODS: We analyzed data of 3997 men and women (aged 28-75 years) who...

Werknemers kunnen op hun werk blootgesteld worden aan verschillende risico’s, zoals blootstelling aan schadelijke stoffen, fysieke belasting en ongevallen. De risico’s van deze verschillende blootstellingen worden tot nu toe onafhankelijk van elkaar berekend en beoordeeld. In een haalbaarheidstudie is voor enkele beroepen in de bouwnijverheid...

This article describes the structure, functionalities, and content of the Advanced REACH Tool (ART) exposure database (version 1.5). The incorporation of the exposure database into ART allows users who do not have their own measurement data for their exposure scenario, to update the exposure estimates produced by the mechanistic model using...

Occupational inadvertent ingestion exposure is ingestion exposure due to contact between the mouth and contaminated hands or objects. Although individuals are typically oblivious to their exposure by this route, it is a potentially significant source of occupational exposure for some substances. Due to the continual flux of saliva through the...

Stoffenmanager Nano (version 1.0) is a risk-banding tool developed for employers and employees to prioritize health risks occurring as a result of exposure to manufactured nano objects (MNOs) for a broad range of worker scenarios and to assist implementation of control measures to reduce exposure levels. In order to prioritize the health risks,...

Objectives: This paper explores the usefulness of the exposure database MEGA for model validation and evaluates the capability of two Stoffenmanager model equations (i.e. handling of powders/granules and machining) to estimate workers exposure to inhalable dust. Methods: For the task groups, ‘handling of powders and granules’ (handling) and ...

As workplace air measurements of manufactured nanoparticles are relatively expensive to conduct, models can be helpful for a first tier assessment of exposure. A conceptual model was developed to give a framework for such models. The basis for the model is an analysis of the fate and underlying mechanisms of nanoparticles emitted by a source...
