Importance of job exposures for rehabilitation and reduced earning capacity

Physical and psychosocial job exposures are associated with health. Medical rehabilitation financed by the German Pension Insurance aims to secure or restore the work ability. Therefore, job exposures should be taken into account. The aim of our study is to describe the possibilites and challenges of the representation of job exposures via job-exposure-matrices by applying a job exposure index based on the occupation of rehabilitation patients. Herefore, a Scientific Use File of the German Pension Insurance with longitudinal data covering an eight-year period is used.
