A wide range of workplace conditions have been implicated as risk factors for a variety of health problems. These workplace conditions include shift work, long work hours, psychosocial stressors, as well as physical conditions.
Occupational groups exposed to a large number of work stressors are found to be at high risk for hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, peptic ulcer disease, headache, musculoskeletal disorders, burnout, depression, anxiety and other undesirable outcomes.
We wanted to be sure that you have heard about the new Work and Family Researchers Network (WFRN), formerly the Sloan Work and Family Research Network. As you may know, the Sloan Network has been the premier online destination for work and family information for the past 14 years. In November 2010, we received a final grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to create this new organization.
