Department for Occupational Medicine and Epidemiology
The main focus of this department is to map possible connections between work environment and illness.
The department carries out research projects connected with reproduction and cancer (agriculture, mycotoxins, silicon carbide), possible injuries to the nervous system (manganese, mercury, electric shock, acryl amide, diving operations etc.), to the lungs and respiratory system (agriculture, organic particulates, silicon carbide, manure dust and cement dust, diving operations) and the indoor climate. In recent years several projects have been started connected with an inclusive working life, and the occurrence of work-related health complaints in the population.
