Occupational Mobility – Identification and Tests of Prevention approches

Project No. FF-FP 0360

Status:

ongoing

Aims:

The goal of the study to identify scientifically funded prevention measures for occupational mobility that can be recommended in order to achieve the Vision-Zero-Goal within the work setting. Based on identified stress and strain profiles for various mobility types suitable prevention measures will be chosen. The effectivity of the prevention approaches will be evaluated according to state-of-the-art while using valid and objective data. Apart from evaluated prevention measures a compilation of best-practice examples will be developed. Implementation recommendations for the social accident insurance will be derived.

Activities/Methods:

First of all, differentiated stress and strain profiles for assorted mobility types will be identified, based on literature study, expert hearings as well as a broad database (via GUROM-online risk assesment instrument). In a smaller sample, conditions for individual action-taking as well as various risks and stressors will be assessed using a task-related job analysis. The mobile part of the job (while driving) will be monitored assessing stress and strain as well as physiological measures. In selected companies situational- and behaviorial prevention measures will be implemented within a control group-waiting study design. Objective as well as subjective pre- and post-measures enable the effect evaluation, whereas the process evaluation shall convey information relevant for the implementation practice. Apart from evaluated prevention measures a compilation of best-practice examples will be developed. Implementation recommendations for the social accident companies will be derived.
