Occupational silica exposure and risk of various diseases: an analysis using death certificates from 27 states of the United States
TLDR
This study corroborates the association between crystalline silica exposure and silicosis, lung cancer, COPD, and pulmonary tuberculosis and provides support for an association betweencrystalline silicas exposure and rheumatoid arthritis. Expand
Prevalence rates of work organization characteristics among workers in the U.S.: data from the 2010 National Health Interview Survey.
TLDR
These national estimates can be used to help occupational health professionals and employers to identify emerging occupational safety and health risks, allow researchers to examine associations with health, and use the data for benchmarking. Expand
Evaluation of diabetes mellitus, serum glucose, and thyroid function among United States workers exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin.
TLDR
Findings provide modest evidence that exposure to TCDD may affect thyroid function and glucose metabolism and no evidence was found that workers exposed to T CDD were at increased risk of thyroid disease. Expand
Acute pesticide poisoning among agricultural workers in the United States, 1998-2005.
TLDR
The findings from this study suggest that acute pesticide poisoning in the agricultural industry continues to be an important problem and reinforces the need for heightened efforts to better protect farmworkers from pesticide exposure. Expand
Exposure to hazardous workplace noise and use of hearing protection devices among US workers--NHANES, 1999-2004.
TLDR
Hearing loss prevention and intervention programs should be targeted at those industries and occupations identified to have a high prevalence of workplace noise exposure and those industries with the highest proportion of noise-exposed workers who reported non-use of HPDs. Expand
Acute occupational pesticide-related illness in the US, 1998-1999: surveillance findings from the SENSOR-pesticides program.
TLDR
The findings suggest that these illnesses continue to be an important occupational health problem, especially in agriculture, and greater efforts are needed to prevent acute occupational pesticide-related illness. Expand
Acute illnesses associated with pesticide exposure at schools.
TLDR
Pesticide exposure at schools produces acute illnesses among school employees and students, and implementation of integrated pest management programs in schools, practices to reduce pesticide drift, and adoption of pesticide spray buffer zones around schools are recommended. Expand
Reproductive factors and risk of glioma in women.
TLDR
The hypothesis that reproductive hormones play a role in the etiology of glioma among women is supported. Expand
The prevalence of short sleep duration by industry and occupation in the National Health Interview Survey.
TLDR
Self-reported short sleep duration among US workers varies by industry and occupation, and has increased over the past two decades, suggesting the need for further exploration of the relationship between work and sleep, and development of targeted interventions for specific industry/occupation groups. Expand
Prevalence of obesity among U.S. workers and associations with occupational factors.
TLDR
Work-related factors may contribute to the high prevalence of obesity in the U.S. working population, and public health professionals and employers should consider workplace interventions that target organization-level factors, such as scheduling and prevention of workplace hostility. Expand
