Work disability in the Netherlands: Data, conceptual aspects, and perspectives
Data on work disability are not standardized with respect to the definitions of the main variables. As a consequence, such data do not usually provide reliable information about health problems and related outcome measures. Examples of this unreliability are provided by the different approaches used in Dutch social security compared with national statistics on disability. It is recommended that a single concept be developed and used in order to make data comparable. The recently-presented International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health by the WHO seems to be a sound base for further exploration of the possibilities of standardization in occupational health and social security.

Work and health country profiles of twenty-two European countries
During the Second Meeting of the European Network of WHO Collaborating Centres held in Budapest, Hungary in September 2001, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH) was assigned the task of compiling a list of work and health profiles of European countries. The data were submitted by the responding countries on the basis of a questionnaire and a sample entry provided by FIOH. This publication consists of the profiles based on the responses of 22 European countries, and may be used as a tool for benchmarking and improving occupational safety and health efforts. The countries surveyed are: Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, the Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Yugoslavia.

Development of a model describing transfer processes in occupational safety and health
Entwicklung eines Modells zur Beschreibung des Transferprozesses am Beispiel Arbeitsschutz [in German]
In an initial phase of a research project on information transfer processes, a literature survey on occupational safety and health (OSH) information was carried out, enabling the highlighting of problems both with respect to the information itself and to its use. In order to address these problems, a Transfer Process Model (TPM) was developed for representing and describing all relevant factors which determine the transfer of OSH information. It is based on learning theories and technical and interpersonal models of communication. Elements of the model include transmission of information, learning, assessment of the transfer process by users of the information, and their decisions and actions based on this information.

Priorities and emerging needs in OSH research
Priorità ed esigenze emergenti nel settore della ricerca in tema di Salute e Sicurezza sul lavoro [in Italian]
The Italian Istituto Superiore per la Prevenzione e la Sicurezza sul Lavoro (ISPESL) has finalized the results of an extensive data collection from both national and EU research establishments, government services and other sources with the aim of highlighting and classifying into precise thematic areas the current OSH situation in Italy. This document will also be used as the basis for future research plans in conjunction with the European Commission as well as the future OSH activities of a number national government services. A target is the optimization of resources and the avoidance of duplication. A list of Italian experts active in OSH is annexed.

Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994: The health and safety file
This information sheet provides guidance on the health and safety file required under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994 (CDM Regulations, see CIS 95-13). CDM Regulations are aimed at improving the overall management and coordination of health, safety and welfare through all stages of a construction project. The health and safety file is a record on the key risks that could arise in subsequent maintenance, repair and construction work. Contents include: preparing the health and safety file (what information is required, and how it needs to be collected, presented and stored); contents of the health and safety file; future use of the health and safety file.

A text retrieval method for the European Commission's MARS database: Selecting human error related accidents
In a world of "over-information" (much gossip, little knowledge), successful information management increasingly depends on the use of sophisticated methods to effectively extract relevant knowledge from that already acquired on some topic and in some format, for application according to current topics and formats of interests. In this paper, a quite general approach to knowledge elicitation from industrial accident databases is presented and its implementation in the European Commission's Major Accident Reporting System (MARS) database is discussed. Its practical applicability is demonstrated by deriving lessons learned from major industrial accidents notified to MARS from member states of the European Union under the mandatory requirements of the "Seveso Directive" with regard to the contribution of human errors to such events.

Emotional stress and information processing ability in the context of accident causation
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of nonwork stress on information processing ability. The research question was studied by simulating industrial tasks (using playing cards) that required varying amounts of information processing. Nonwork stress was measured using parts of a pre-existing questionnaire. Twelve persons were selected to participate in this study. Nonwork stress was found to negatively affect information processing ability, as measured by reaction time. As a consequence, stress due to nonwork factors can be considered an important factor in accident occurrence in complex person-machine systems; one that is, at the very least, worthy of further investigation. The findings of these investigations have far-reaching implications with regard to employment practices; particularly those concerned with pre-employment screening and stress management training. These implications are based on the premise that the likelihood of an accident in complex person-machine systems decreases as high risk individuals are identified and trained.

Dissemination of OHS information into small businesses
Surveys of small business employers and producers and disseminators of OHS information in Australia revealed that the majority of information produced and circulated is targeted towards committed employers and OHS practitioners. Much of the information is duplicated by the various agencies and small employers tend to scan and disregard the majority of it. Business owners tend to rely on various networks to seek advice on OHS matters. It is recommended that this networking system should be further studied and utilized in the dissemination of OHS information.

This article issued following a seminar held in March 1996 in Montreal (Canada) highlights the numerous possibilities offered by the Internet for research on prevention. Three sites are presented with relevant data (addresses, access, specialty, etc.): that of Turva in Finland, SIRI of the University of Vermont in the USA, that of the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) in Hamilton (Ontario) and an additional site specialized in ergonomics (ERGOWEB) of the University of Utah (USA). The advantages of the Internet for OSH specialists are outlined as are its drawbacks, including the fact that research on the net can be very time-consuming.
