  3. 3. Background • Despite increase in life expectancy duration of working life is relatively short • Prolongation of working life – national goal of all Nordic countries • Arena of work disability • Workers • Healthcare service • Workplace • Legislative and insurance system 22.10.2015 © FIOH Solovieva S| www.ttl.fi 3
  4. 4. General aims of the project • to build up a Nordic Occupational Register with the information on the burden of work-related chronic diseases on work participation across different occupations • to utilize the constructed register to assess the effectiveness of interventions targeted at increasing work participation at population level 22.10.2015 © FIOH Solovieva S| www.ttl.fi 4
  5. 5. Population level interventions vs. individual level interventions 22.10.2015 © FIOH Solovieva S| www.ttl.fi 5 • Individual level interventions (e.g. workplace interventions)  not always feasible due to economical, legal or political as well as ethical obstacles  limited generalisability and low societal impact • Population level interventions (e.g. legislative changes, action plans or initiatives)  high generalisability at a low cost  large societal impact
