New research for a healthy working environment

Working conditions contribute to the development of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). In addition to demographic changes due to the rise in the ageing population and women at work, migration also presents new challenges to ensuring a healthy workforce . As a result, the European Commission is particularly interested in creating healthy working environments. The exposome, which takes into account all relevant exposure throughout the course of life in relation to health, is a promising concept for elucidating the complex relationships between environment and disease. The working-life exposome can be defined as the measure of the entire occupational and related non-occupational exposures of an individual. Taking a working-life exposome approach will provide better insights into the relationships between exposure related to work and disease at different life stages and for vulnerable groups. . The EU-funded EPHOR project will develop a working-life exposome toolbox that will provide scientists, occupational health practitioners and policy makers with advanced methods to collect individual data and with knowledge of the relationship between working life exposome and NCDs as well as methods to evaluate its social and economic impacts.
