Abstract
Methods: A selfadministered questionnaire was completed by 7753 employees (67% response rate). Relations between risk factors (dyssomnia, low physical activity, alcohol, smoking, unhealthy food habits, overweight and stress) and shortterm sickness absence were analysed by calculating etiologic fractions and binary logistic regression. Relations between the number of risk factors and shortterm sickness absence were also analysed. Finally, the cost of shortterm sickness absence from risk factors was estimated to illustrate the potential savings in avoided loss of productivity that could be gained from intervention programmes.
Results: Stress, overweight, smoking and dyssomnia are significantly related to shortterm sickness absence. Etiologic fractions revealed that these factors were associated with between 29.8% and 37.8% of shortterm sickness absence. The number of risk factors was also related to the risk and length of sickness absence.
Conclusion: This study identified risk factors that could be addressed by intervention programmes to reduce shortterm sickness absence. Based on the results, focus on the risk factors that account for most of shortterm sickness absence and reduction of the number of risk factors could potentially reduce shortterm sickness absence. A 30% reduction is equivalent to an avoidance of a loss of productivity of 4.5%, corresponding to 9.4 million Euros per year.
