Cardiovascular Health Status by Occupational Group - 21 States, 2013

In 2013, prevalence of meeting two or fewer CHMs ranged from 5.0% among farming, fishing, and forestry employees to 14.6% among...

Prevention-focussed consideration of case in OHS
A consideration of the natural characteristics of causation in OHS has identified three functional domains into which OHS cases should be routinely separated for the purposes of statistical evaluation and prevention action. These domains are the OCCUPATIONAL INJURY(SAFETY) domain, the OCCUPATIONAL DISEASE domain, and the PUBLIC HEALTH INFLUENCE domain. The separation of OHS cases by these three domains and the reporting of their separate rate data have the potential to greatly enhance the effectiveness of prevention initiatives because of the substantially different contribution to outcome within...

Social Determinants of Health
The Canadian Facts The primary factors that shape the health of Canadians are not medical treatments or lifestyle choices but rather the living conditions they experience. These conditions have come to be known as the social determinants of health. This information – based on decades of research and hundreds of studies in Canada and elsewhere – is unfamiliar to most Canadians.
