Answers to the questions on Measuring change in psychosocial working conditions: methodological issues to consider when data are collected a...
Genetic susceptibility to beryllium: a case-referent study of men and women of working age with sarcoidosis or other chronic lung disease.
The study was designed to investigate whether beryllium exposure was related to illness diagnosed as sarcoidosis. Chronic beryllium disease (CBD) and sarcoidosis are clinically and pathologically indistinguishable, with only the presence of beryllium-specific T-lymphocytes identifying CBD. Testing f...
Human trafficking for forced labour and occupational health.
Components of job control and mortality: the Finnish Public Sector Study.
These results suggest that the associations between components of job control and mortality are mixed and may vary depending on sex and socioeconomic status.

0018 Validation of a wearable real-time monitor of exposure to naphthalene.
I examines the degree to which the instrument serves as a sensor of naphthalene by assessing the concordance between measured personal air levels and those measured with conventional technologies e.g. active samplers; Phase II evaluates the validity of the instrument to serve as a dosimeter, correla...
0173 Grouping strategies for exposure assessment of the psychosocial work environment.
We examined the degree of exposure contrast yielded by different grouping strategies. In 2007, we enrolled 4489 public employees from Aarhus, Denmark in the PRISME-cohort, with follow-up in 2009. From pay-roll registers we grouped workers at 2 organisational levels: department (n = 22) and work unit...
0195 Carbon nanotube exposure assessment for a study on early biological effects; the CANTES study.
We identified exposure to clusters of CNT in production, R&D and office workers of the CNT production facility. As expected GM exposure was higher for production than for R&D workers, however considerable variability was observed. Additional quantitative measurements in office and production workers...
0198 Lung Cancer Risk among Minnesota Taconite Mining Workers.
The mining and processing of taconite results in exposures to non-asbestiform amphibole and non-amphibole minerals. Previous studies have shown that taconite mining workers are at an increased risk for developing lung cancer and mesothelioma and duration of employment has been shown to contribute to...
0212 Epidemiological surveillance of work-related injuries in norway: an enduring challenge.
We attempt to profile the multitude of challenges for surveillance of work-related injuries. We collated information from several Norwegian studies that evaluated the different systems that yield epidemiological data on work-related injuries. These studies identified many challenges with regards to...
0371 The relationship between welding fume exposure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in shipyard welders in Korea.
Our findings suggest a potential association between metal fume exposure and COPD. Further study with a prospective design is needed to investigate the excessive decline of lung function by welding fume exposure. © 2014, Published by the BMJ Publishing Group Limited.
