Worsening Workers' Health by Lowering Retirement Age: The Malign Consequences of a Benign Reform
In 2003, the retirement age of Swiss construction workers was lowered from 65 to 60. This reform has been intended to improve their health. Our study shows the opposite outcome. The human capital theory suggests that investments in employees’ productivity by the employer and the employees themselves depend on the time remaining until their retirement. Hence, we hypothesize that pension reforms that reduce employees’ working horizon decrease investments in work-related human capital, which translates into a higher prevalence of sickness absences, a longer absence duration, and worse...
Effect of safety investments on safety performance of building projects
The construction industry is increasingly reliant on the voluntary effort of contractors to reduce accidents on construction sites. This study aims to investigate the effects of contractors’ safety investments on safety performance and identify the factors influencing the effects of safety investments on safety performance. To fulfill the research aims, a regression/correlation research design was adopted. Data were collected using multiple techniques (structured interviews, archival data and questionnaires) with 47 completed building projects. Bivariate correlation and moderated regression...
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...
L’influence des conditions de travail sur les dépenses de santé
L'objectif de cette étude est d'estimer l'impact de certaines conditions de travail sur des indicateurs de dépenses de santé et de mesurer l'effet agrégé sur les dépenses de santé de la collectivité. Cette analyse empirique repose sur un échantillon de salariés âgés de 18 à 65 ans ; ces données sont issues de l'enquête Santé 2002-2003. Publié par l'IRDES (Institut de recherche et documentation en économie de la santé), mars 2011. Source : http...
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...
Health Care Reform and the Health of Performing Artists in the US
Abstract: Health care in the United States is beset by three critical problems: cost, quality, and coverage. We have by far the most expensive health care in the world, spending about 17% of our Gross Domestic Product, or over $7,000/person; most other developed countries spend about 8 to 10% of their GDP on health care. Despite spending that much money, the health status of Americans is far from the best in the world. Underlying both problems is the fact that over 15% of the US population does not have health insurance,5 which means they do not have access to health care when it can be delivered...
Analyse coût-bénéfice des actions de prévention
Exemple du risque de manutention pour le personnel soignant Cet article présente les résultats d'une évaluation coût-bénéfice réalisée dans deux hôpitaux ayant mis en place des programmes de prévention du risque de manutention manuelle. 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
