    Upon completing the course, participants will understand how a life course approach has implications for work and health research, policy and practice. They will be able to use the core life course concepts to inform their work and health research, policy and practice.

    Prolonging Working Life among Senior Workers

    12th – 14th of January 2021
    Voksenåsen, Oslo, Norway

    Due to demographic changes across Europe, there are strong political interests in maintaining the labour force by prolonging working life. This NIVA course provides participants with theoretical knowledge on push and stay factors for labour market participation among senior workers and discusses how this knowledge can be used for practical purposes.

    Course objectives

    * Provide participants with theoretical knowledge on push and stay factors for labour market participation among senior workers
    * Discuss how this knowledge can be used to prolong working life in different target groups (different sectors, long vs short education, seated vs physically demanding work)

    Main topics

    The course will cover push and stay factors for labour market participation across the following topics:

    * Psychosocial working environment
    * Physical working environment
    * Age-discrimination at workplaces
    * Gradual retirement (possibility for reduce working time or responsibility)
    * Competencies and continuing education/training of skills
    * New technologies at the workplace
    * Lifestyle and health
    * Senior policies at the workplace
    * Working life expectancy
    Target group

    * Researchers
    * Occupational health professionals
    * PhD students

    We take into account the corona pandemic
    We will do our utmost to arrange courses, even in these exceptional times. We have the readiness to arrange courses with modified concepts, allowing smaller groups to meet, in some cases national groups, and the possibility to participate online.

    Our cancellation policy is generous, so it is safe to enroll to a course well in advance and cancel participation if the situation makes it difficult or risky to travel.

    Chemical Exposure and Cardiovascular Disease

    26th – 28th of May 2020
    Quality Hotel Olavsgaard, Skjetten (Oslo area), Norway

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is associated with several risk factors. This course will mainly focus on chemical exposure, particles and combination exposures in the working environment, while also paying attention to other risk factors connected with life style and environment. Possible disease mechanisms will be discussed, in addition to methods used in research in the field.

    Course objectives
    Associations between chemical exposures in workplaces and environment and prevalence of CVD will be presented, and possible explanatory mechanisms will be discussed. Relevant methods for use in research projects, including early markers for CVD, will also be covered.

    Main topics
    • History of pollution and CVD
    • Epidemiology of chemicals and CVD
    • Mechanisms
    • Biomarkers
    • Other risk factors than chemicals
    • Discrepancy between environmental and workplace epidemiology
