Occupational exposome: An organisational model

2022-03

This article describes the concept of occupational exposome in highlighting the value of the concept in understanding the complexity of workplace exposures and their determinants. An organizational approach to the occupational exposome is proposed. The organizational approach is intended, from an interdisciplinary perspective, to broaden the levels of analysis of the exposures (whether they are) of the individual to the work situation (individual or collective), the work situation in the workshop or in the service, the company and the socio-economic environment of the company, the socio-economic environment of the company to the Society as a whole. The organizational approach of the occupational exposome helps to broaden the spectrum of health risk assessment and to promote a comprehensive and integrated approach to the prevention of arduousness at work and occupational wear and tear.
