Abstract

Nearing the end of the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses and companies had decided to continue their operations and strive forwards, posing superfluous challenges to occupational health (OH) professionals in keeping workers safe against the continuous threat of infections. The novelty of COVID-19 results in a myriad of medical questions, all of which needs to be answered promptly and reliably through medical research followed by dissemination of answer through publications. Making the knowledge accessible through publications ensures that OH professionals and other relevant parties can collectively develop new policies, determine preventive action, the standard of procedures and care, and administer medical procedures – all of which eases the fight against pandemics in the workplace. Despite its complications and challenges, the author hoped that OH professionals realized the importance of research and publishing in the fight against this pandemic.

Abstract

Predictive models have long been used to assist clinical decision-making in medicine. Predictive models are made to estimate how likely a person is to have a disease (diagnostic model) or will experience a disease (prognostic model). In the field of occupational health, for example, diagnostic models can be used to increase the efficiency of surveillance programs by identifying groups of workers with occupational diseases without using complex and expensive diagnostic tests.Work-related asthma (WRA) is the most common occupational lung disease in industrialized countries and the second most common in developing countries. Around the world, especially in developing countries, diagnosing WRA is still difficult due to the limitations of available diagnostic tests. Specific inhalation challenge (SIC), the best test for diagnosing occupational asthma, is only available in several research centres worldwide.Several questionnaire-based models have been developed to diagnose work-related asthma at both the primary (general practitioner) and secondary (specialist) levels of care. A recent model for diagnosing occupational asthma was developed using data from Canada and has been validated using data from several European countries. A collaboration has been initiated to assess the application of this model among Indonesian workers.

Abstract

Breastfeeding is undoubtedly the best nutrition for infants. Even throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, more pregnant mothers intend to breastfeed their babies. Despite this desire, not all of them succeed in initiating breastfeeding. One of the overlooked challenges in breastfeeding is that working mothers need to return to work, increasing hesitancy to continue breastfeeding due to numerous inconveniences, leading to full breastfeeding cessation. Systematic changes are needed following simple and practical changes: giving access to knowledge on breastfeeding while working, sharing advice and support from employers and colleagues, and providing a breastfeeding-friendly workplace, all of which can increase breastfeeding rates in many countries. Improvement in breastfeeding habits would also bring greater impact as increases in working mothers’ wellbeing will increase their work performance. Danone has done several breastfeeding initiatives and post-natal support in workplaces which has shown a positive impact through preliminary evaluation included in this study. The corporate world has not fully supported breastfeeding, but some best practices and learning points shed from this study could become an example that would lead to better commitments from other companies.
