Is Work Bad for Health?
The Role of Constraint vs Choice This paper reviews the literature on the impact of work on health.

We show that most of the evidence on the negative health impact of work found in the literature is based on situations in which workers have essentially no control (no choice) over the amount of work they provide. In essence, what is detrimental to health is not so much...
Organizational factors associated with work-related sleep problems in a nationally representative sample of Korean workers
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to assess the association of organizational factors with work-related sleep problems (WRSP) among Korean workers. METHODS: The data were derived from the First Korean Working Conditions Survey conducted in 2006 with a representative sample of the Korean working population (n = 10,039). RESULTS: The overall prevalence of WRSP was 5.1 % (95 % confidence interval (CI) 4.7-5.5). Those who experienced sexual harassment at work (adjusted odds ratio (aOR) 3.47: 95 % CI 1.77-6.81), discrimination due to sex (aOR 2.44: 95 % CI 1.36-4.36) or age (aOR 2.22: 95 % CI 1...
ACOEM Releases Guidance on Managing Workplace Fatigue
A workplace in which hazards are well-controlled, with an active culture of health and a supportive work environment, can enhance worker health and well-being, both on and off the job. Implementing a comprehensive fatigue risk management system could improve workplace safety and efficiency, according to a new guidance paper released by the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. Safety and productivity in the workplace are directly related to worker health, reports the paper, titled, “Fatigue Risk Management in the Workplace.” A workplace may have chemical, physical...
Working conditions in the European Union
Working time and work intensity This report outlines the current situation regarding work intensity, indicating a clear link between work intensity and poor working conditions, both physical and psychological.

The analysis reveals sharp variations between different Member States in relation to working hours and the associated gender gap, and points to the huge costs both for workers and companies arising from high work intensity.

Overcrowding in hospital wards increases andtidepressant use among personnel
Overcrowding in terms of high bed occupancy increases antidepressant use among hospital personnel, says recent research coordinated by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. The study has just been published online in the high-quality American Journal of Psychiatry. "This study suggests that patient overcrowding increases mental disorders requiring medica-tion, such as depression, among employees", says special researcher Marianna Virtanen from the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. "Risk for depression seems to increase after at least six months' patient overcrowding"...
