A health economic outcome evaluation of an internet-based mobile-supported stress management intervention for employees
Objective: This study aimed to estimate and evaluate the cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit of a guided internetand mobile-supported occupational stress-management intervention (iSMI) for employees from the employer's perspective alongside a randomized controlled trial. Methods: A sample of 264 employees with elevated symptoms of perceived stress (Perceived Stress Scale, PSS- 10 ≥22) was randomly assigned either to the iSMI or a waitlist control (WLC) group with unrestricted access to treatment as usual. The iSMI consisted of seven sessions of problem-solving and emotion-regulation techniques...

Results of a Randomized Controlled Trial Objectives: The aim of this study was to conduct a cost-effectiveness and return-on-investment analysis comparing a mindfulness-based worksite intervention to usual practice. Methods: Two hundred fifty-seven governmental research institute employees were randomized to the intervention or control group. Intervention group participants received an eight-week mindfulness training, e-coaching, and supporting elements. Outcomes included work engagement, general vitality, job satisfaction, work ability, and costs. Cost-effectiveness analyses were conducted from...
The Longitudinal Prediction of Costs due to Health Care Uptake and Productivity Losses in a Cohort of Employees With and Without Depression or Anxiety
Objective: To examine how various predictors and subgroups of respondents contribute to the prediction of health care and productivity costs in a cohort of employees. Methods: We selected 1548 employed people from a cohort study with and without depressive and anxiety symptoms or disorders. Prediction rules, using the RuleFit program, were applied to identify predictors and subgroups of respondents, and to predict estimations of subsequent 1-year health care and productivity costs. Results: Symptom severity and diagnosis of depression and anxiety were the most important predictors of health care...
Economic evaluation of a participatory ergonomics intervention in a textile plant
In this study we report on the economic evaluation of a participatory ergonomics process undertaken at a clothing manufacturer in Southwestern Ontario, Canada that employs approximately 300 workers. We undertake a cost-benefit analysis from the company perspective. Intervention costs amounted to $65,787 and intervention benefits $360,614 (2011 Canadian dollars). The net present value was $294,827, suggesting that the intervention was worth undertaking based on the costs and consequences over the measurement period spanning more than four years. Based on these costs and benefits, the benefit-to...
International Symposium on the Challenges of Workplace Injury Prevention through Financial Incentives
On November 29 and 30, 2012, the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) hosted the International Symposium on the Challenges of Workplace Injury Prevention through Financial Incentives. More than 180 researchers, students, policy-makers, members of the injured worker community, employer representatives, worker representatives and other stakeholders—primarily from Ontario, but also from other parts of Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand—came together in Toronto to participate in the symposium. The aim was to provide a forum to discuss the social, economic and...
An empirical analysis on labor unions and occupational safety and health committees' activity, and their relation to the changes in occupational injury and illness rate
OBJECTIVES: To find out from an analysis of empirical data the levels of influence, which a labor union (LU) and Occupational Safety and Health Committee (OSHC) have in reducing the occupational injury and illness rate (OIIR) through their accident prevention activities in manufacturing industries with five or more employees. METHODS: The empirical data used in this study are the Occupational Safety and Health Tendency survey data, Occupational Accident Compensation data and labor productivity and sales data for the years 2003 to 2007. By matching these three sources of data, a final data set ...
Systematic review of the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of employee assistance programmes
Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) are common organisational practice. Recent estimates suggest that over eight million employees in the UK have access to EAP services and between five to ten per cent of those with access will use the services. The constituent services of EAPs vary. However, all tend to deliver a proportion of their services through individual counselling. A range of employee support services is claimed to offer a number of benefits to both employees and employers including improvements in such outcomes as sickness absence and staff turnover, employee psychological well-­...
How to create economic incentives in occupational safety and health: a practical guide
This Guide on Economic Incentives Schemes is intended to serve as a practical and user-friendly guide to help incentive providers to create or optimise their own economic incentive schemes. Incentives schemes should not only reward past results of good OSH management (such as low accident numbers), but should also reward specific prevention efforts that aim to reduce future accidents and ill-health. Therefore the expert group suggested the development of compilations of innovative and evidence-based preventive solutions, starting with the three sectors construction, health care and HORECA.

Economic Evaluation Workbook for Workplace Parties in the Healthcare Sector
Health and safety managers need information on the financial implications of health and safety interventions at their healthcare facilities in order to make informed resource allocation decisions. However, Institute for Work & Health (IWH) researchers have found that few economic evaluations of health and safety interventions have been conducted in healthcare or other sectors, so there is little information available to occupational health and safety (OHS) decision makers from external sources. To address this gap, the research team worked with partners to develop a step-by-step software tool...
Tackling bullying
This guide is intended for managers who are tackling bullying in their workplace. It describes bullying behaviours, examines the costs of bullying to staff morale and productivity, and identifies the perceived incidence and possible drivers of bullying in the Victorian public sector. The guide then goes on to show how to respond to bullying when it first occurs and the follow up action to prevent it from happening in the future. Along the way it offers quotes, facts, resources and a case study. Source : http://www.ssa.vic.gov.au/CA2571410025903D/WebObj/PSSC_TackBullying/$File/PSSC_TackBullying...
Health at Work
Indicators and Determinants In this paper, the current knowledge and issues regarding the economic impact of health at work in Germany is reviewed as a part of the EU project “An inquiry into health and safety at work: a European Union perspective” (acronym: HEALTHat-WORK). After a description of the German institutional framework for occupational safety and health (OSH), it presents indicators of health and safety at work – such as sickness absences, occupational accidents and diseases, disability rents, working conditions, and OSH policy. The paper's major contribution is...
Workplace mental injury creating 'perfect legal storm', report says
Financial rewards for damages caused by mental injury at work have increased over the past five years by as much as 700 per cent, according to a report released today by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC). The report warns that a “perfect legal storm” is brewing in the area of mental health protection at work, and points to emerging responsibilities for employers to provide a psychologically safe workplace. October is Canada's Healthy Workplace Month and next week is Mental Illness Awareness Week. The report entitled, Tracking the Perfect Legal Storm (2010), concludes...
Economic incentives to improve occupational safety and health
A review from the European perspective The European Union strategy 2007-12 on occupational safety and health (OSH) recognises that there is a need to use economic incentives to motivate enterprises to apply good practice in their prevention work. The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) contributes to meeting this need by providing information on the types of economic incentives that are most likely to succeed. Research has shown that external economic incentives can motivate further investments in prevention in all organisations and thus lead to lower accident rates. The primary...

Despite Treatment, Depressed Workers Have Decreased Productivity
Employees with depression have higher costs related to short-term disability and absenteeism—even after receiving antidepressant therapy, reports a study in the February Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, official publication of the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM). Led by Suellen Curkendall, Ph.D., of Thomson Reuters Healthcare, Washington, D.C., the researchers used insurance claims and employee health and productivity databases to look at the relationship between antidepressant treatment and productivity costs.

The Business Case for Safety and Health
Those working in the occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) field understand the basic importance and value of their efforts for workers, employers, and overall society. Many partners of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) cite real-world examples of cost savings and business advantages realized by companies with strong OEHS programs. How then do we get the rest of the business community to better appreciate the return on investment in OEHS? One way NIOSH is attempting to make the business case for OEHS is through a new course developed with the National...

Dans un cas, l'évaluation montre, avec l'hypothèse d'une réduction de 60 % des accidents du travail, que les investissements en prévention sont rentabilisés au terme de 3,3 années. Pour le second cas, les bénéfices attendus...
Ergonomics case study: Car parts manufacturer realizes benefits of PE program
An Ontario manufacturer opened its doors to researchers who helped implement a participatory ergonomics (PE) program to improve the musculoskeletal health of workers. The company has since learned that the PE program saved it almost a quarter-of-a-million dollars — and in the most unexpected place. http://www.iwh.on.ca/at-work/57/pe-case-study
Occupational safety and health and economic performance in small and medium-sized enterprises
The present review examines the link between Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) and economic performance, especially as it relates to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). It is essential to stress from the outset that while there is no clear definition of economic performance, there are indicators that can examine the concept and its importance to businesses. OSH is not usually viewed as a contributory factor to the economic viability of an organisation. Compliance with government guidelines, regulations and laws is generally the primary focus of OSH policies. Perceptions of the connection...

Effectiveness and economic benefits of workplace health promotion and prevention
IGA concludes that there is consensus in recent scientific literature on the fact that interventions of workplace health promotion and prevention make an important contribution to the preservation of employees´ health. They can reduce health risks, decrease the prevalence of illnesses as well as promote health-conscious behaviour. There is also consensus about the fact that workplace health promotion pays off for companies by reducing medical costs and decreasing sickness absenteeism from work. http://www.enwhp.org/index.php?id=624#1007
