Comment
  • Topic sex/gender differences in occupational
    health is relevant since
  • high prevalence of work-related diseases like
    MSD, mental disorders, dermal and toxicology
    diseases

al., 2001)
  • Upper extremity diseases
  • The Netherlands 23,4 other European countries
    22,8
  • Low back
  • The Netherlands 25,5 other European countries
    33,2
  • Lower extremity diseases
  • The Netherlands 6,4 other European countries
    11,5

Examples of jobs with work-related health
problems
5
Risk factors for Musculoskeletal upper extremity
diseases
  • Physical
  • Posture
  • Repetitive movement
  • Vibration
  • Force
  • Non-physical
  • Too little recovery time
  • High psychological demands

Conclusion
  • Focus on occupational health and medicine is
    relevant
  • Sex/gender topics in occupational health are
    (until now) scarce

Review Hammarström
  • Three aims
  • 1. identify possible problems and/or challenges
    with regard to the concepts of sex and gender in
    work-related health
  • 2. to propose a tool to implement the theoretical
    insights
  • 3. the tool will be used to distinguish gender
    research from gender or sex difference research

9
Comments
  • Methods used in relation to the aims are not
    clear and transparent described
  • Relevance and relation with work-related health?
  • Unemployment and the number of articles related
    to unemployment are used as outcome measure and
    not the work-related health problem itself (a
    choice, but why?)

10
Comments
  • The criteria for the proposed tool are not
    transparent
  • Based on evidence?
  • The relevance of the tool
  • Users researchers? Other professionals
  • The impact of the tool in relation to
    work-related health and sex/gender differences
  • Implementation of the tool?

11
Implementation of the Back-Happy Tap-stand
12
In conclusion
  • Focus on sex/gender research within occupational
    health and medicine is relevant
  • Manuscript is not (yet) transparent and well
    structured in relation to the aims
  • The relevance and impact of the tool is not clear
    in relation to sex/gender research and
    work-related health
