Abstract

This study quantifies the impact of psychosocial work environment factors on the risk of disability pension. Differences in risk of disability pension were estimated in a representative sample of Danish employees followed for a total of 118 117 person-years of risk time. After control for smoking, BMI and ergonomic work environment, low decision authority and low variation in work showed a statistically significant association with disability pension. Adverse psychosocial work environment factors accounted for 10–15% of disability pension cases.
