Objectives The aims were to investigate whether occupational noise increased the risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke and to elucidate interactions with stressful working conditions in a cohort of Swedish men. Design This is a prospective cohort study on CHD and stroke in Swedish men followed until death, hospital discharge or until 75 years of age, using Swedish national registers on cause of death and hospital discharges. Baseline data on occupation from 1974 to 1977 were used for… Expand

Paper Mentions

Cardiovascular mortality in a Swedish cohort of female industrial workers exposed to noise and shift work
TLDR
Female paper mill workers had an increased mortality from acute myocardial infarction, especially before retirement age, when exposed to noise ≥ 90 dB(A) and with long-time employment, and the association to occupational noise and shift work. Expand
The Association of Occupational Noises and the Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome.
TLDR
This study indicated the significant association between noise exposure and MetS in line-production workers, however, more studies are needed to confirm the results. Expand
The Influence of Occupational Noise Exposure on Cardiovascular and Hearing Conditions among Industrial Workers
TLDR
Exposure to high noise level demonstrated a significant association with hypertension and hearing loss when the duration time to occupational noise was longer than 10 years and steps to reduce workplace noise levels and to improve workplace-based health are urgently needed. Expand
Occupational noise and age: A longitudinal study of hearing sensitivity as a function of noise exposure and age in South African gold mine workers
TLDR
Age and occupational noise exposure influence hearing thresholds over time and the continued increase in hearing thresholds of the NEG above that of theNNEG can be related to ineffective noise management programmes and/or the fact that early noise exposure leads to a higher burden of hearing loss over time – even after noise exposure had stopped. Expand
Waist circumference increases risk of coronary heart disease: Evidence from a Mendelian randomization study
This study investigated whether expanding waist circumference (WC) is causally associated with an elevated risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), using a two‐sample Mendelian randomization (MR) studyExpand
Association of self-reported physical aspect of workplace environment and hypertension - a cross sectional study in UK
TLDR
The characteristics of the physical environment of the workplace in the workplace and the leading cause of cardiovascular disease, which is responsible for 9.4 million death per year, and the effects of these characteristics and other factors are studied. Expand
Клинико-фенотипические особенности инсульта и прогноз у работников при воздействии производственного шума
TLDR
The proposed multivariate model is informative for the individual prediction of the development of stroke in men working in conditions of exposure to occupational noise, because reflects the degree of influence of one factor or another on the developmentof the disease. Expand
Noise and Vibration Risk Assessment for the Operators of Crawler Loaders
TLDR
The main purpose was to investigate the noise and vibration values transmitted to the operators in some working conditions and use these data to obtain reliable estimates of the exposure to noise, to whole-body and to hand-arm transmitted vibrations, as well as to evaluate the related risk levels. Expand
How Paramedics Perceive Internal Noise in Ambulance? Sensory Processing Sensitivity (SPS) and Subjective Noise Assessment
TLDR
Both paramedics and drivers as occupational groups are liable to noise, which seems to be particularly harmful and burdensome to the HSP group, which may lead to an increase not only in their productivity but also in their quality of life. Expand

A longitudinal general population-based study of job strain and risk for coronary heart disease and stroke in Swedish men
TLDR
Exposure to occupational psychosocial stress defined as job strain or low control increased the risk for CHD, especially among smokers and blue-collar workers, and there was no increased risk for stroke in any of the JDC categories. Expand
The association between job strain and atrial fibrillation in Swedish men
TLDR
Exposure to occupational psychosocial stress defined as high strain based on the job demand–control model may be associated with increased risk for atrial fibrillation, and the observed increase in risk is small and residual confounding may also be present. Expand
Long-term effect of occupational noise on the risk of coronary heart disease.
TLDR
In the long-term follow-up of industrially employed men, exposure to noise, especially to impulse noise, was associated with a moderate, but statistically significant increase in CHD risk that persisted even after the workers had passed the age of retirement. Expand
Job strain as a risk factor for coronary heart disease: a collaborative meta-analysis of individual participant data
TLDR
The findings suggest that prevention of workplace stress might decrease disease incidence; however, this strategy would have a much smaller effect than would tackling of standard risk factors, such as smoking. Expand
Long-term psychosocial work environment and cardiovascular mortality among Swedish men.
TLDR
Results indicate that long-term exposure to low work control is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease mortality. Expand
A Prospective Cohort Study of Perceived Noise Exposure at Work and Cerebrovascular Diseases among Male Workers in Japan
TLDR
Noise exposure did not increase the risk of cerebrovascular diseases, subarachnoid haemorrhage, or cerebral infarction, however, perceived noise exposed individuals with perceived noise exposure at work should be regarded as a high‐risk group for intracerebral hemorrhage. Expand
Occupational Exposure to Noise and Mortality From Acute Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
Chronic exposure to noise levels typical of many workplaces was associated with excess risk for acute myocardial infarction death, and this association deserves further attention. Expand
Joint effects of job strain and road-traffic and occupational noise on myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Exposure to a combination of noise exposure and job strain increases the risk of MI substantially in a considerable part of the population, which has relevance for prioritization of preventative measures. Expand
Association between self-reported occupational noise and the prevalence of stroke: Secondary analysis of the National Health Interview Survey, 2014
Evidence of occupational noise as a risk factor for stroke is very scarce and comes mainly from outside the US. The present study aimed to explore the association between self-reported occupationalExpand
Exposure to workplace noise and the risk of cardiovascular disease events and mortality among older adults.
TLDR
Exposure to severe workplace noise for less than 1 to 5 years versus no exposure was associated with incident stroke OR 3.44 and those who did not use hearing protection devices were 53% and 75% more likely to have prevalent CVD and angina, respectively, compared to those never exposed to workplace noise.
