Background With the increase of the statutory retirement age, the number of self-employed older workers will most likely increase. Therefore, this study aimed to explore: 1) the differences in self-rated health and work ability of self-employed workers and employees, 1) whether self-employment is associated with better self-rated health and work...

Objectives: The aims of this article are to (1) determine whether and to what extent general perceived health and quality of supervision predict voluntary early retirement pension (VERP) and (2) assess whether quality of supervision modifies the association between general perceived health and VERP. Methods: Employees aged 49–64 years who...

Although work is good for you, it can actually be bad for your health, too. Poor working conditions are responsible for 5% of the total disease burden1, a percentage that is the same as the figure for the adverse health effects resulting from an unhealthy environment or obesity. After smoking, these three factors are responsible for the major...

Many developed countries are confronted with ageing populations, due to the increase in life expectancy and long-term decline in fertility rates. As a consequence, the ratio of the retired elderly to the active working population increases. This puts a pressure on the social security system, and causes tension in the solidarity between...

This review presents the context in which the review was undertaken: the ageing workforce in Europe. It examines research in three main questions: (1) ‘What changes occur in ageing individuals?’, (2) ‘What are the implications of these changes throughout working life?’ and (3) ‘What OSH measures could promote sustainable work throughout working...

Objectives: Exposure-outcome studies, for instance on work-related low-back pain (LBP), often classify workers into groups for which exposures are estimated from measurements on a sample of workers within or outside the specific study. The present study investigated the influence on bias and power in exposure-outcome associations of the sizes of...

The trade-off between feasibility and accuracy of measurements of physical exposure at the workplace has often been discussed, but is unsufficiently understood. We therefore explored the effect of two low-back loading measurement tools with different accuracies on exposure estimates and their associations with low-back pain (LBP). Low-back...
