Title Psychosocial work conditions and registered sickness absence: A 3-year prospective cohort study among office employees
Bibliographic information Oct. 2009, Vol.82, No.9, p.1107-1113. 23 ref.
Abstract The objective of this study was to investigate associations between various psychosocial work conditions and sickness absence. It involved 395 employees working in an insurance office. Data on psychosocial work conditions were obtained by means of self-administered questionnaires in 2002 and linked to registered sickness absence from 2002 to 2004, adjusting for earlier sick leave and psychological distress. Overall findings were not conclusive.
