This is a Powerpoint presentation about alert and sentinel systems for the identification of occupational diseases, published on the site of OSHA Europe, for an expert audience. The presentation highlights the findings of a major project on alert and sentinel approaches to identifying emerging occupational health risks and new work-related diseases. The research will allow a better understanding of effective alert and sentinel approaches and the ways in which these can support policy-making and the evidence-based prevention of new work-related diseases.
The presentation can be very useful for educational purposes. It is very clear and gives an overview of four major systems for identifying occupational diseases:
- compensation-based systems
- systems for data collection and statistics
- sentinel systems
- public health systems
