    ONLINE COURSE: The Economics of Occupational Safety and Health

    Due to the pandemic we have decided to move the course The Economics of Occupational Safety and Health entirely online. We have changed the course format to make it more suitable for the online concept and the course date is now the 3rd of February 2021.

    The intention of this OSH Economics course is to provide participants with methodological skills and practical capabilities to undertake and evaluate economic analyses on OSH issues. The course will be held on a level which is comprehensible also for non-economists. Some other issues will also be addressed with the aim of increasing the awareness of the value of economic calculations in the internal OSH governance.

    The course webpage can be found here and the preliminary course program here.

    The price of the course has been lowered to EUR 50 due to its online format.

Possible disease mechanisms will be discussed, in addition to methods used in research in the field.

    Course objectives
    Associations between chemical exposures in workplaces and environment and prevalence of CVD will be presented, and possible explanatory mechanisms will be discussed. Relevant methods for use in research projects, including early markers for CVD, will also be covered.

    Main topics
    • History of pollution and CVD
    • Epidemiology of chemicals and CVD
    • Mechanisms
    • Biomarkers
    • Other risk factors than chemicals

    Work Disability Prevention
    – Bridging research and practice

    14th – 18th of June 2021
    Kurhotel Skodsborg, Skodsborg, Denmark
    This course presents “The Best Of” the highly valued 3-year course on Work Disability Prevention. Work disability occurs when a worker is impaired in performing his or her job. Work disability is expressed by continuing working but performing less, i.e. presenteeism, or by reporting sick, i.e. absenteeism. As such, it imposes large individual, social, and economical burdens. It is also a major concern to workers, their families, employers, policy makers, insurers, and occupational health service providers.

    Course objectives
    The objective of the course is to disseminate transdisciplinary knowledge with focus on theoretical, methodological, ethical and practical challenges in relation to work disability prevention. The target audience is PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and practitioners with a master’s degree who are linked to the work disability field.

    Main topics
    Three different Work Disability Prevention topics will be addressed and integrated:
    1. Introduction to Work Disability Prevention (including transdisciplinarity)
    2. Intervention research in Work Disability Prevention (including organizational interventions and health promotion aiming at both individuals and workplaces)
    3. Sociopolitical challenges with Work Disability Prevention (including implementation of evidence-based practice)

    Course leaders
    Ute Bültmann, Professor, University of Groningen, NL
    Angelique de Rijk, PhD, Professor, Maastricht University, NL
    Emilie Friberg, Senior Researcher, Karolinska Insitutet, SE

    Registration deadline: April 12th 2021
