The aims of this project are:

  1. Review of the literature on occupational health surveillance.
  2. Development of a robust set of indicators feasible and valid for the monitoring of occupational disease in New Zealand.
  3. Development of a concept-driven occupational disease surveillance system based on existing data sets to describe the trends and prevalence of occupational disease in New Zealand.
  4. Testing of the surveillance system with one long latency disease (cancer) and two shorter latency diseases (asthma and dermatitis).
