Additionally, in a survey, the validity was evaluated by means of hypotheses testing (using correlations and regression analyses). Results: The questionnaire consists of a set of seven capability aspects for work. For...
Examining the Relationship Between Productivity Loss Trajectories and Work Disability Outcomes Using the Panel Study of Income Dynamics
Objective: To identify trajectories of productivity loss and examine the relationship between the trajectories and work disability outcomes. Methods: Latent class growth analysis of productivity loss was estimated for the ages of 25 to 44 years in the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (N = 4960). Differences among the trajectories for work disability outcomes for the ages of 25 to 64 years were estimated using logistic regression and analysis of variance. Results: A five-group trajectory model was identified with a no-risk, low-risk, high-risk, early-onset increasing risk, and late-onset increasing...

METHODS: Trained physical therapists administered questionnaires and performed functional testing of commercial truck drivers scheduled for their DOT examination. The results were communicated to providers performing DOT examinations. Incidence rates of low back injury and associated workers'...
The Clinical Utility of the Multidimensional Pain Inventory (MPI) in Characterizing Chronic Disabling Occupational Musculoskeletal Disorders
Purpose The Multidimensional Pain Inventory (MPI) was designed to help capture unique characteristics of chronic pain patients. The present study examined the proportion of subgroups classified by the MPI in a chronic disabling occupational musculoskeletal disorder (CDOMD) patient cohort, and described characteristics of MPI profile groups in terms of other psychosocial variables. Methods A cohort of 1,270 CDOMD patients undergoing an interdisciplinary functional restoration program was studied. Before the start of the program, all patients received a standard psychosocial assessment battery. A...
Workplace Rehabilitation and Supportive Conditions at Work: A Prospective Study
Purpose To investigate the impact of rehabilitation measures on work ability and return to work (RTW), specifically the association between workplace rehabilitation/supportive conditions at work and work ability and RTW over time, among women on long-term sick leave. Methods Questionnaire data were collected (baseline, 6 and 12 months) from a cohort of women (n = 324). Linear mixed models were used for longitudinal analysis of the repeated measurements of work ability index (WAI), work ability score and working degree. These analyses were performed with different models; the explanatory variables...
Employers' Attitudes Towards Hiring and Retaining People with Disabilities: A Review of the Literature
This selective review provides an overview of salient research findings related to employers' attitudes towards disability and prospective influences on employers to improve employment outcomes of people with disabilities. Research studies included for review are mainly those which investigated employer attitudes towards disability as predispositions to hiring people with disability. Selected studies were classified into three categories including hiring and accommodating employees with disabilities, work performance, and affective reactions and behavioural intentions of employers. Excluded...
Disability Accommodation in Nonstandard and Precarious Employment Arrangements
This study, based on data from a large nationally representative sample of Canadian workers with disabilities, examines the relationship between employment arrangements and the accommodation of disability in the workplace. We address whether workers with disabilities in nonstandard arrangements are more likely to have unmet accommodation needs and if other key dimensions of precarious employment mediate the relationship between nonstandard work and accommodation. Results from multivariate models suggest that despite disability legislation, practices of workplace disability accommodation parallel...
Confirmatory Factor Analysis of the Work Limitations Questionnaire (WLQ-25) in Workers' Compensation Claimants with Chronic Upper-Limb Disorders
Purpose : To examine the factorial validity of the Work Limitations Questionnaire (WLQ-25) among workers' compensation claimants with chronic upper-limb disorders. Methods : Attendees of the WSIB Shoulder and Elbow Specialty clinic in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, completed a survey that includes the WLQ-25 [4 subscales: time-management (TM), physical demands (PD), mental-interpersonal (MI), and output demands (OD)]. Confirmatory factor analyses (n = 2262) were conducted to evaluate and compare alternative 4- and 5-factor WLQ-25 structures [MI subscale intact vs. separated into mental demands ...
Work-related psychosocial and mechanical risk factors for work disability
A 3-year follow-up study of the general working population in Norway Objectives This study examines the impact of work-related psychosocial and mechanical risk factors for work disability in the general working population. Methods A randomly drawn cohort from the general population in Norway aged 18–66 years was followed for 3 years (N=12 550, 67% response rate at baseline). Eligible respondents were in paid work for ≥10 hours per week in 2006 and were still in paid work or had quit working because of health problems (work disability) in 2009 (N=6745). Five work-related psychosocial factors...
