OBJECTIVES: Globally, norovirus (NoV) is the leading cause of gastroenteritis infection among all ages. The development of prevention strategies in the field of occupational health requires a detailed knowledge about the impact of the disease on employees. This review article aims not only at evaluating the burden of NoV outbreaks on staff but also at discussing implications for future prevention strategies. METHODS: Published NoV outbreaks in Central and Northern Europe were identified via a sy...

Hintergrund Seit 2011 mussen dem Robert Koch-Institut (RKI) nach dem Infektionsschutzgesetz (IfSG) regelhaft nur noch labordiagnostisch bestatigte Norovirus (NoV)-Gastroenteritisfalle, nicht aber z. B. klinisch- epidemiologische gemeldet werden, weshalb sich die ohnehin schon bestehende Untererfassung von NoV-Fallen in Deutschland deutlich verstarkt haben durfte. Fragestellung Um das Ausmas der Untererfassung zu diskutieren, wird in diesem Beitrag fallbeispielhaft dargestellt, inwieweit bei Gast...

(1) Background: Hazardous substances in surgical smoke that is generated during laser or electrosurgery pose a potential health hazard. In Germany, the Technical Rules for Hazardous Substances (TRGS 525) have included recommendations for appropriate protective measures since 2014. Up to now, no empirical data has been available on the extent to which recommendations have been implemented in practice. (2) Methods: In 2018, 7089 surgeons in hospitals and outpatient practices were invited by email ...

It is commonly accepted that the number of officially reported incidences of norovirus (NoV) according to the German Protection against Infection Act (Infektionsschutzgesetz) does not reflect the ‘true’ incidence of NoV in Germany. This study aims to reveal the reasons for the underreporting of NoV cases by comparing secondary data. Methods: NoV incidence (cases per 100,000 reference persons) in the age group 18–65 was derived from register data of four different sources in the German public hea...

The rising burden of common mental disorders (CMDs) in employees requires strategies for prevention. No systematic data exist about how those involved perceive their roles, responsibilities, and interactions with other professional groups. Therefore, we performed a multi-professional standardized survey with health professionals in Germany. A self-administered questionnaire was completed by 133 occupational health physicians (OHPs), 136 primary care physicians (PCPs), 186 psychotherapists (PTs),...

Purpose Common mental disorders (CMDs) are becoming increasingly relevant in the working world. Numbers of risk factors have been confirmed by mostly correlative cross-sectional studies. Comprehensive and effective prevention is urgently needed. There is little knowledge about employees’ own perceptions on causes of CMDs and prevention measures. Therefore, a survey was conducted in 2016.

(1) Background: Both patient and occupational safety cultures should be considered when promoting safety culture. To our knowledge, there are no studies that capture patient safety culture (PSC) and occupational safety culture (OSC) in hospitals while using a common questionnaire. The aim of this feasibility study in a German university hospital was to develop a questionnaire to assess both issues analogously. In addition to feasibility outcomes, we report results of PSC-OSC comparisons. (2) Met...

Introduction Many studies investigate the possible positive and negative effects of work-related factors on mental health of employees, but only little is known about the attitudes of the persons involved. Therefore we aimed to assess the perceptions of occupational health physicians (OHP), primary care physicians (PCP), psychotherapists (PT), human resources managers (HRM), and employees (EMP) with regard to work-related risk factors and possibilities for prevention of common mental disorders (...
