Workplace innovation, as it developed from the beginning of this century in Europe, is a member of the Sociotechnical Systems Design (STSD) family (Mohr & Van Amelsvoort, 2016), going back to the restructuring of Europe after the Second World War, starting more or less the same policies for productivity and industrial democracy in several...

Redesigning organisations and work processes can lead to better organisational performance and jobs in general (e.g., Bloom & van Reenen, 2010; Boxall, 2012; Boxall & Macky, 2009). Workplace innovation (WPI), a specific approach focusing on participative organisational redesign, is beneficial for both business performance and the quality of jobs...

The aim of the current study was to evaluate whether workplace health promotion programs improve self-perceived health of employees with a low socioeconomic position (SEP), and whether differential effects exist between individuals with a low SEP for gender, marital status or age. Individual participant data from six Dutch intervention studies...

Will sensor-based exposure assessment be the future in workplace settings? Static instruments with embedded sensors are already applied to monitor levels of dangerous substances-in the context of acute health effects-at critical locations. However, with wearable, lightweight, miniaturized (low-cost) sensors developing quickly, much more is...

This commentary explores the use of high-resolution data from new, miniature sensors to enrich models that predict exposures to chemical substances in the workplace. To optimally apply these sensors, one can expect an increased need for new models that will facilitate the interpretation and extrapolation of the acquired time-resolved data. We...

Technologically the logistics sector is rapidly changing as it continually enhances its process optimization. There is a keen eye on continuously improving quick dispatch and delivery, with minimal errors, very low costs, and high flexibility. Although the Dutch logistics sector is certainly advancing technologically, it is not the most...

Companies try to make the best of their inputs. The COVID-19 crisis is an important reason for companies to rethink how they should organise their work. Markets are in turmoil and companies are not sure whether they will manage to sell anything, let alone be sure that they can make the product or provide the service. In times of social distance,...

Steeds meer werkenden krijgen te maken met een chronische ziekte tijdens hun loopbaan. Op dit moment heeft ongeveer 30% van de werkenden in Europa een chronische ziekte.1 Werkenden met een chronische ziekte hebben vaker een lager werkvermogen, een verminderde arbeidsproductiviteit en ze hebben een verhoogd risico om vroegtijdig de arbeidsmarkt...

Dermal exposure is an important exposure route for occupational exposure and risk assessment. A fluorescence method has been developed to quantify occupational dermal exposure based on a visualization technique, using Tinopal SWN as a fluorescent tracer. The method was developed within the framework of a large experimental study, the SysDEA...

Exposure sensors can be worn by employees on the chest or shoulder to measure their personal exposure levels. Sensors often record a measurement every few seconds, yielding an exposure profile (time series) for the entire working day. This can be presented to the employees themselves in real time, e.g. using an app. It can be visualized as an...

Sensors can be used to monitor the effectiveness of control measures or working procedures. This applies both to sensors measuring chemical substances and to so-called ‘smart sensors’ that measure physical quantities such as temperature, distance, orientation, vibration, pressure, etc. They are not applied to people but to equipment and...

Background: This individual patient data (IPD) meta-analysis aimed to investigate socioeconomic inequalities in effectiveness on healthy behavior of, and compliance to, workplace health promotion programs. Methods: Dutch (randomized) controlled trials were identified and original IPD were retrieved and harmonized. A two-stage meta-analysis was...

Exposure levels are currently measured by occasionally taking samples from a limited number of employees. A logbook is kept of the activities being carried out while these measurements are being made. The samples are analysed in a laboratory and, together with the log book data, interpreted and provided to the company. This approach does not,...

Introduction: Due to fast technological changes organisations need to innovate to remain economically viable. However, many innovations do not get implemented. This study examines innovation adoption of employees as one of the factors responsible for unsuccessful implementation. The assumption is that mindful organising positively associates...

An exposure profile based on a personal exposure sensor is not easy to interpret. To understand what is causing peak or elevated exposures, insight is needed into what an employee has done, in what way, and under what circumstances, i.e. the context. This context can also be measured - in part - using sensors and other techniques, such as indoor...

Stationary exposure sensors and modelling tools can be used to draw up concentration maps of workspaces. This can be done for more than one chemical substance simultaneously. If employees are fitted with an ILT device, individual exposure profiles can be developed by combining an individual’s indoor location data with the concentration map data.

The implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights could be enhanced by stimulating workplace innovation. There is a reciprocal relationship between job quality and innovation capacity as well as between job quality and labour productivity. Whether these relationships are positive (higher job quality, more innovation capacity, higher...
