Handbook of Research on Functional Materials: Principles, Capabilities and Limitations covers a broad range of modern materials and provides industry professionals and researchers in polymer science and technology with a single, comprehensive book summarizing all aspects involved in the modern materials production chain. The book focuses on industrially important materials, analytical techniques, and formulation methods, with chapters covering step-growth, radical, and co-polymerization, crosslinking and grafting, reaction engineering, advanced technology applications, incl
Enterprise restructuring and the health of employees: A cohort study: by G Geuskens( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

OBJECTIVE:To examine the influence of enterprise restructuring on general health and emotional exhaustion, and to investigate which factors explain the relation between restructuring and these outcomes.METHODS:Longitudinal data of the Netherlands Working Conditions Cohort Study were used. At baseline and after 12 months, 9076 employees filled out a questionnaire. Logistic regression analysis was applied.RESULTS:Prolonged exposure to restructuring increased the likelihood of poor general health, and its influence was partly explained by job insecurity. Emotional exhaustion was more likely among employees that experienced prolonged exposure to restructuring or restructuring during the past year. Job insecurity explained the influence of prolonged restructuring, together with job demands and supervisor's support.CONCLUSIONS:Prolonged exposure to restructuring adversely affects general health and emotional exhaustion in employees, and its influence seems to be explained by job insecurity

What is STREAM? STREAM is a longitudinal study with annual measurements among persons aged 45- 64 in the Netherlands. Participants fill in an online questionnaire on topics such as: health, work, knowledge and skills, social circumstances, and financial situation. More than 12,000 employees, 1,000 self-employed persons, and 2,000 non-employed persons participated at baseline. In the second measurement 82% of the original participants participated, in the third measurement this was 80%, and in the fourth measurement 74%. For data collection an existing Intomart GfK internet panel is used. For 89% of baseline participants, data linkage with information from Statistics Netherlands is possible. To obtain addition insight, qualitative studies have been and will be conducted among STREAM participants. STREAM is being conducted by TNO, in close collaboration with the VU Medical Center and the Erasmus MC
Shift work and cancer: Night work and breast cancer – results from a large prospective study in the Dutch general working population.

Objectives Despite the current debate, few prospective studies on night work and breast cancer have been performed, and the scientific evidence is limited. The aim of this prospective study was to investigate the relation between night work and breast cancer in the general working population. Methods The study population consisted of 285 712 women participating in the Labour Force Survey in the Netherlands (1996–2008). These women were aged 15–64 years, and worked at least 12 h per week. Night work (24:00–6:00), age, education, country of birth, number of children in the household, occupation, contract hours, and years in current work were asked. Data were coupled to the National Medical Registration (1996–2009) and mortality statistics (1996–2009) to identify women that were admitted to hospital or had died due to breast cancer. Logistic regression analysis was applied. Results Night work was performed sometimes by 3.7% and always by 6.7% of the women. In total 2.119 women (0.7%) were admitted to hospital because of breast cancer after participating in the survey, and 455 women (0.2%) died due to breast cancer. In the multivariate analysis, sometimes night work was not related to hospital admission (OR 1.15 (0.93–1.42)), whereas always night work was related to a decreased likelihood of hospital admission (OR 0.76 (0.62–0.94)). A similar pattern was found for mortality, though not significant. Conclusions These preliminary results suggest that night work does not increase the risk of breast cancer in the general female working population. We currently perform additional analyses on the dose-response relationship
Work absence and return 2: Predictors of early retirement: a Dutch prospective cohort study. Oral presentations: Day 2: Thursday, September 8, 2011. 22nd International Conference on Epidemiology in Occupational Health EPICOH 2011 September 7-9, 2011, Oxford, UK: by G Geuskens( )

Objectives Despite the current debate on early retirement, relatively few longitudinal studies investigated determinants of (non-disability) early retirement. The aim of the present study was to identify (changes in) risk factors that predict early retirement. Methods Data of the Netherlands Working Conditions Cohort Study were used. Employees aged 55–63 years filled out questionnaires at baseline (n=2845), after 12 months (n=1829), and after 24 months of follow-up (n=1501). Generalised estimation equations (12-month time-lag model) were used to study predictors of retirement before the official retirement age of 65. In addition, logistic regression analysis was applied to study the influence of changes in independent variables during the first 12 months of follow-up on early retirement during the second 12 month period. Results In total, 200 employees retired early. Early retirement was predicted by older age and working in the same job for a longer period of time in the multivariate analysis, whereas employees with high mental demands or lower satisfaction with their salary were less likely to retire early. With respect to changes in risk factors, the occurrence of enterprise restructuring and a decrease in job demands predicted early retirement in the multivariate analysis. Employees that reported an increase in support from colleagues less often retired early. (Change in) health was not a significant predictor. Conclusions Work-related factors, and sudden changes in these factors, and financial factors predict early retirement in employees. A healthy social climate at work, challenging work, and financial incentives might support the prolongation of working life

Gezien de vergrijzing en ontgroening van de Nederlandse bevolking, is het van groot belang dat mensen langer participeren in betaald werk. Om dit met beleid en bedrijfsinterventies te bewerkstelligen, is inzicht nodig in determinanten van doorwerken. Grootschalig multidisciplinair longitudinaal onderzoek is echter schaars. Om deze reden is STREAM in 2010 gestart. STREAM is een longitudinaal onderzoek onder ruim 15.000 werknemers, zelfstandigen en niet-werkenden van 45-64 jaar. Het doel van STREAM is om te identificeren onder welke omstandigheden mensen (langer) doorwerken, met behoud van een goede gezondheid en productiviteit. In dit rapport worden de eerste 19 studies beschreven. De resultaten van deze studies zijn gepubliceerd in wetenschappelijke tijdschriften, of zullen nog gepubliceerd worden. Drie onderwerpen staan in de verschillende studies centraal, namelijk ‘werkvermogen en productiviteit’, ‘baanmobiliteit’ en ‘vroegpensioen en doorwerken’
