In the past 25 years, encouraged perhaps by the programs initiated during the Kennedy administration and by Kenneth Cooper’s book Aerobics (1968), interest in the benefits, both physiological and psychological, that accrue to individuals who exercise on a regular basis has grown tremendously. Indeed, the importance of incorporating a program of systematic exercise into one’s lifestyle is now advocated by organizations such as the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Department of Health an...

We studied physical fitness and risk of all-cause and cause-specific mortality in 10 224 men and 3120 women who were given a preventive medical examination. Physical fitness was measured by a maximal treadmill exercise test. Average follow-up was slightly more than 8 years, for a total of 110 482 person-years of observation. There were 240 deaths in men and 43 deaths in women. Age-adjusted all-cause mortality rates declined across physical fitness quintiles from 64.0 per 10 000 person-years in t...

Abstract During the last decades, humanity experiences an increasing demographic change. The relative percentage of older people is growing, while fewer young employees are entering the labour force. This phenomenon is directly connected with ageing of the workforce. Older workers constitute a special group with characteristics that require special attention from the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) point of view. The aim of this paper is to address what changes occur in ageing workers as a ...

Companies in different industries are all facing the same challenge: demographic change. This leads to a higher share of elderly workers in most workplaces. When designing workstations or evaluating risks at workplaces, it is necessary to take into account age-related changes in physical and sensory skills and in cognitive or mental capabilities. Although there is a lot of data available in literature concerning age-related changes in human performance prerequisites, only a few methods consider ...
