  1. Work content of Norwegian occupational physicians.

    Article - En anglais

    There is little empirical knowledge of the work done in occupational health services.

    In a study of the work of 50 Norwegian occupational physicians, their work on 249 work-days was recorded and classified into nine different categories according to the work content.

    Most (40%) of the work concerned work environment matters, 26% went to nonwork-related activities, 18% was for administration, 4% was for personal proficiency, and 12% went to various other activities.

    A total of 36% of the work concerned preventive activities, and 30% involved curative activities, of which two-thirds (22%) was for nonwork-related illnesses.

    This latter figure seems large in comparison with the preventive aims of occupational health services given by the Norwegian labor inspectorate.
