Preventive occupational health care
Focus of research

My thesis concerned the development of a job-specific workers’ health surveillance for construction workers. After my doctoral research, I continued to work on research topics related to preventive occupational health care, specifically regarding those working in high-demand occupations. Strategies to guard workers’ health, optimize their work ability and facilitate a healthy, productive, and sustainable working life are my main interests.
