Epidemiological Studies of Psychosocial Factors as Related to Workers’ Health

  • Kari Lindström

Abstract

At the Institute of Occupational Health, Helsinki, Finland, one of the research objectives is to clarify the psychological and social components of work and their relations to workers’ health. Therefore occupational stress, its causation, and consequences for health are some of the main current concerns. Attention has, however, been increasingly paid to health promoting factors at work and the establishment and evaluation of control measures in the work environment.
