Summary - Alert and sentinel approaches for the identification of work-related diseases in the EU

Keywords:Work related diseases, Alert and sentinel systems, Emerging risks

This report presents the findings of a major project on alert and sentinel approaches to identifying emerging occupational health risks and new work-related diseases.

Existing approaches implemented in the European Union (and in some cases elsewhere) were explored and, following an analysis of 12 alert and sentinel systems and consultation of experts and stakeholders, recommendations are made for setting up and improving such surveillance systems.

This research will allow a better understanding of effective alert and sentinel approaches and the ways in which these can support policy-making and the evidence-based prevention of new work-related diseases.
