Summary "This publication is a collection of selected papers resulting from the 3rd International Symposium on Work Ability - Promotion of Work Ability Towards a Productive Aging, October 22 - 24, 2007. It discusses, from a variety of angles, the goal of developing a truly international standard tool that can be used internationally, taking into account differences in circumstances among countries. The aging workforce issues addressed by the occupational health and ergonomics fields are of particular interest to the well developed regions. Many of these areas are European countries in Northern Europe, and in Asia it is Japan that is actively working on these issues. In view of this, Vietnam in Southeast Asia was selected as the conference location for the ICOH SC for Aging and Work. The reason for selecting Vietnam as conference location is that Asia is soon expected to be confronted with the issue of aging workforces. Previous proceedings of ICOH SC for Aging and Work conferences have --
been published to propose measures for aging workforce societies from the standpoint of occupational health and ergonomics and other areas of the social sciences. This publication addresses in a major way the Work Ability Index (WAI) as an index for evaluating work ability. The aim of the book is to establish a common guideline that exceeds national and regional boundaries that can be used for the diagnostic evaluation of work ability and employability." --Book Jacket
