Characteristics of the Working Population in the Netherlands

Part of the Future Health Scenarios book series (FUHS)


As explained in sections 3.4. and 3.6, we assume that the work capacity of the working population partly determines whether demanding factors at work will or will not lead to adverse health effects. Work capacity may be defined as the total physical and mental abilities of the worker in carrying out a particular task at a given moment. Physical work capacity, knowledge, skills and emotions are all contributory factors (Van Dijk et al., 1990).
