Considerations for physical employment standards in the aging workforce
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Objective: This review provides an insight into aging and older workers, and presents recommendations to promote worker longevity.
Methods: This narrative review draws on evidence from 108 published sources.
Results: The relationship between age and work is not simple; factors including the physical nature of the job and worker’s health and fitness interact with age to either increase or decrease the potential effect of age. Evidence suggests that the issues arising from an aging workforce can be managed through polices that focus on active aging through: attitude management; flexible working and the provision of occupational health.
Conclusion: The integration of such interventions would require company and organizational commitment from the top down with educational programs at all levels to ensure understanding and participation.
