Epidemiological research in maritime health and safety - why and how

Epidemiological research in maritime health and safety - why and how
December 7, 2012 at 12:00 - 1:00 PM ET
Olaf Jensen, Research(Centre of Maritime Health and Society)
The core message is that quality in production and all human activity is obtained by asking questions about any possibly errors in the products and by solving them systematically by use of the best evidence. These principles are shared in health research with the Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) principles in parallel with the ISO9000 etc. for industrial product quality. The methods share the basic logical structure (see for example SixSigma). The core issues include evidence based risk-assessment, management, evaluation and control/ surveillance.
The subject is risk prevention and the intention is to learn how research is a core element of the occupational risk prevention. To raise questions about the risks and to answer them is a core part of risk prevention when new risks are turning up continuously. Research is an organized way to ask questions and to find the answers. The basic elements in research is critical and systematically thinking and to be open for questions. The same way of thinking is needed to produce the best quality of the products. So risk prevention is more and more included as a natural part of high quality work and products. The question WHY health research is relevant for all areas of the human resource is because all industries want high quality production. This high quality production is depending of high quality work which again is depending on high quality of health and safety. None of the objectives can be reached without research and the use of scientific health evidence.

Who Should Participate
This lecture is relevant for any HR Professional and managers of all types of industries. Why, because all HR responsibles should know that taking care of the workers´ health and wellbeing is a central issue to get quality in all aspects of the company? A systematic and evidence based health and safety management should be an integrated part of the HR professionals tool-box using the same logical principles that are used to obtain the highest possible quality of the industrial products.
