  • Work and health: old and new challenges for the welfare

  • Lifestyles in Italy during the crisis: changes in unhealthy behaviors
           according to the occupational conditions
    • Abstract: Simone Sarti, Marco Terraneo, Mara Tognetti Bordogna
      Sociological literature recognizes in social structure an important determinant of individuals’ health conditions. A large number of studies stress the influence of social stratification, such as education and occupational position, on health indicators. However, we also know that the worsening of socio-economic conditions is only partly transmitted directly. In fact, many effects are associated with individual and familial lifestyles. Moreover, it’s important to describe the dynamics of these relationships also considering macro-changes, such as those imposed by the economic crisis. For example, some authors argue that phases of economic recession produce ambivalent effects on health. In this perspective this work shows changes in some risk factors in the years of the crisis associated with territorial dimension and the job position. The study uses data from ISTAT Multiscope Data Aspects of Daily Life (2005-2013). The analyzes are conducted with multivariate multilevel regression techniques. Among the epidemiologically validated risk factors we stress the followings: 1) smoking, 2) alcohol, 3) obesity and diet, and 4) physical activity. The results show a substantial stability over years considered, with the exception of a general decrease in alcohol consumption. The occupational stratification of unhealthy lifestyles would remain substantially unchanged, meanwhile the only social category that appears to be wors-ening (in particular smoking and physical activity) is composed of unemployed persons in southern Italy, an area strongly impacted by the crisis.

  • Health inequalities of precarious workers during the economic crisis in
    • Abstract: Alessandra Fasano, Aldo Rosano
      The labour market in Italy is constantly changing with a polarisation of working conditions. The workforce is more and more heterogeneous and the non-standard forms of employment are growing. Over the last years, various theoretical and analytical researches have investigated the relationship between precarious work and health disorders. Starting from an overview of the existing literature, in this paper the authors analysed health inequalities and access to health services among Italian precarious workers, using "IT-SILC" (Italian Statistics on Income and Living Conditions) from 2004 to 2015. The study investigated the differences in self-perceived state of health and in access to out of pocket payments for health services or for therapeutic treatments between precarious workers and fulltimers. Comparison with previous studies has allowed us to define an updated picture of the phenomenon. By comparing the temporal and geographical trends, the authors observed a significant impact of the crisis, which has aggravated the disadvantage of precarious as compared with the stable ones. At the regional level, the most critical situation occurs in the southern regions, where indicators appear generally less favorable, along with an acute disadvantage of precarious workers.

  • The Drowned and the Saved: Unequal social protection during the Great
    • Abstract: Roberto Leombruni, Francesco Colombo
      Employment has a key role in shaping people’s health. It provides both opportunities for its promotion and exposure to risk factors, such as periods spent in unemployment or in precarious jobs. In recent decades, the Italian labour market has been reformed structurally, with the aim of shifting social policies towards a model of flexicurity. This research reviews these reforms from an equity perspective, with a focus on the distribution of labour related health risks, and on the role played by welfare measures. To this end, we introduce a labour market inclusion indicator, which sums up those who are employed to those who are unemployed but receiving welfare benefits. We use this indicator to identify the main social groups "suffocated" by the crisis and assess the ability of welfare measures to "rescue" them. Results show that the crisis had a heterogeneous impact, affecting young workers and females the most. The welfare state was most effective in protecting those less affected by the economic downturn, thus increasing inequalities.

  • Preventive strategies to face the health risks derived from dismissal
    • Abstract: Roberto Di Monaco, Silvia Pilutti, Giuseppe Costa
      Unemployment has negative effects on health, as known. The recent economic crisis has dramatically increased the number of unemployed people and the risks on mental health, especially in Italy. Many stable and qualified employees, aged over 30 and with a family of their own, have lost their jobs and have been pushed to conditions of uncertainty and risks of poverty. In this context, our research was focused on the experience of dismissal and its effects on people’s health and on their ability to reaction and activation taking into consideration the social mechanism through which it acts. We assume that relationships, among people and between people and institutions, can be the key fact to support unemployed in order to overcome the critical event and reduce damage to health. The research group designed quantitative and qualitative tools. The survey was conducted with semi-structured questionnaires, sent to all adult persons (30-45 years), extracted from the archive of the Obligatory Communications of the Province of Turin, permanently employed, fired against their will in the first half of 2013, unemployed during the following 18 months. Around 300 subjects answered the questionnaire. We also conducted 8 focus groups and 20 interviews on the same sample. Self-perceived mental health was measured by the SF12 index. The results were then compared with those collected by ISTAT on employed and unemployed people of the same age in Piedmont. We carried out an analysis of the social mechanisms and of the different factors that, according to the theory, have effects on health: lack of economic resources, the crisis of social role, deterioration of relationships, etc. Social relationships have been studied to reconstruct the effects of the dismissal. Results highlight that dismissal, more than unemployment, has a negative impact on health, at least on the short and medium term. Moreover, the research shows the fundamental role of protection that social relationships have on health because people who lost their job tend to isolate themselves and feel abandoned by institutions. In this light, it would seem necessary to enhance policies aimed at creating and maintaining enabling social relations.

  • The dark side of work life extension: health, welfare and equity concerns
    • Abstract: Chiara Ardito, Angelo d’Errico
      European countries have experienced an outstanding increase in life expectancy during the last decades; however, this desirable and laudable societal achievement has challenged pension systems financial sustainability. National governments have almost unanimously responded to this demographic change by limiting access to retirement, mainly increasing statutory pension age. This article explores possible unintended effects of work life extension in the context of ageing population and provides some policy considerations. In particular, the authors focus on the following issues: work ability at older age, the potential negative health consequences of prolonging exposure to occupational hazards, welfare program substitution, shortage of informal caring, and, finally, the inequity innate in pension systems which disregard differences in life expectancy between socio economic groups.

  • Caring for carers. Implications and repercussions of reduced attention to
           family caregivers on individual health and collective wellbeing
    • Abstract: Nicoletta Bosco
      The condition of family caregivers - between tasks concerning the spheres of family reproduction and work - sheds light on many of the ambivalences which accompany the crisis of welfare systems and their sustainability. In Italy three draft laws on the urgency of a legal recognition and the safeguard of these figures are currently being examined. At the same time, many initiatives, led by different organizations are directing attention towards the risks of delegating care roles to the families, when those are not adequately supported. Due to the informal nature of this role, this remains a little known population, of which it is difficult to estimate consistency and characteristics. This contribution, based on national and international researches and data, offers an analysis aimed at investigating reflections on the consequences, particularly the social ones, of the failure to support family caregivers

  • Employee welfare for the worker’s wellbeing: an exploratory survey
    • Abstract: Ariela Mortara, Rosantonietta Scramaglia
      In the last years, employee welfare policies have joined, if not replaced, those of institutional welfare, to ensure, among other things, the increased wellbeing of people at work. The paper discusses the results of an exploratory research aiming at understanding workers’ appreciation for employee welfare practices, as well as what workers consider most rewarding and which elements of the working environment and methods contribute to their psychophysical wellbeing. The entire sample perceives employee welfare practices as a requirement, the interviewees are on average very interested in all the services, with a clear greater enthusiasm of the female part. Health, as the concern for the health of the entire worker’s family, emerges as a particularly pressing requirement.

  • Priority, methodological and conceptual issues regarding epidemiological
           research of occupational psychosocial risk factors for poor mental health
           and coronary heart disease
    • Abstract: Hermann Burr, Angelo d’Errico
      In psychosocial occupational epidemiology, most past research has focused on the demand-control (DC) model, and in recent decades also on the effort-reward imbalance (ERI) model, in order to detect risk factors for health. The focus on these models raise: a) priority, b) conceptual and c) methodological issues that will be discussed in the article. The priority issues pertain to whether there is empirical evidence for the focus on the two models. For conceptual issues, main questions are whether the empirical confirmation of the assumptions of these models holds and if the sub-dimensions of the models’ scales have equally strong health effects. Concerning methodological issues, we discuss how exposure to job strain is categorized, how ERI has previously been measured, and the validity of self-reports of job strain. To tackle the open questions, main reviews were reviewed and supplemented by own assessments of the existing literature on mental health and coronary heart disease.

  • Inequalities in claims and insurance recognition of musculoskeletal
    • Abstract: Dario Fontana
      The article is dedicated to the study of the rates of claims and recognitions of musculoskeletal occupational disorders based on the Inail data and emerging related inequalities. The first paragraph is focused on the construction of the dataset and the second shows the calculation of the incidence of the aggregate complaints from production sector (Ateco) and province. The third paragraph analyzes the relationship between Ateco and the province in determining the course of the complaint. In the fourth paragraph the influence of Province and Ateco is analyzed in relation to social, economic and institutional phenomena. The fifth paragraph investigates the probabilistic influence regarding the recognition of occupational diseases in the employment sector, province, and pathology. The study shows a general framework of underestimation of the phenomenon, where institutional distortions arise and generate inequalities: in determining a claims or a recognition, being resident in one territory is more valuable than the related employment sector.

  • Promoting health as a form of corporate welfare: the co-construction a WHP
           initiative between primary prevention and symbolization processes
    • Abstract: Enrico Maria Piras, Paolo Rossi, Francesco Miele
      Workplace Health Promotion (WHP) is a topic that has been analyzed from a number of different disciplines and viewpoints (from preventive medicine to business sciences). Our article aims at contributing to the debate on WHP from an organizational perspective, examining how the implementation of a WHP program is constructed and negotiated by different organizational actors and stakeholders. Our study analyzes a WHP initiative promoted by a large research institute in Northern Italy. The peculiarity of this initiative stands in its processual dimension, that is characted by a dynamics of co-construction of the program by the managers, the workforce and some external stakeholders. The findings of our research shed light on the tensions that may arise in the governance of a WHP program and point out some of the implications of the provision of benefits related to health issues in a large organizational setting.

  • Effective Workplace Health Promotion in the Network Society: the Role of
    • Abstract: Gea Ducci, Lella Mazzoli
      This contribution is focused on the key role played by communication in Workplace Health Promotion in the context of network society. According to the main WHP models, ascriptive policies have tended to be superseded by ones based on greater participation and involvement of workers in organizations. This emplies engaging and dialogical communication methods towards workers, taking into account the use of social and participatory web with a multi-channel approach. It’s possible to identify different levels of communication that are so relevant in the WHP processes, considering the changed medial context in which Health Communication is developing today. From the analysis of a specific case (a multinational pharmaceutical company), conducted through in-depth interviews with some key management figures, critical reflections and some indications emerge to understand and manage an effectively communication in this field.

  • Professions of prevention in the changing world of work. The environment
           and workplace of prevention technicians
    • Abstract: Stefano Neri
      Health prevention in the environment and workplace is increasingly integrating and partially substituting its traditional inspective and surveillance approach with a promotional and proactive one. Environment and workplace health prevention technicians could play a very important role in this trend, thanks to their legally protected high level inter-disciplinary skills and responsibilities, acquired in a longstanding professionalization process. Using the theoretical tools of the sociology of professions, the author analyses the process of professionalization of environmental and occupational technicians, through an analysis of available documents and literature, integrated by interviews with representatives of professional associations. The conclusions highlight that, although regulation supports a complete shift from occupation to profession, the real forms of professionalization of this group might not be enough to enable them to play a prominent role in the new world of prevention.
