The compendium of occupational and personal risk factors (ORFs/PRFs) in disease and injury is designed to inform general medical and occupational medicine practitioners, researchers, as well as employers, workers, and other stakeholders that there are many instances where ORFs and PRFs can combine to affect disease or injury. Compendium projects undertaken by NIOSH researchers in collaboration with clinicians, researchers and medical residents at several occupational medicine residency programs in the US and methodological considerations for examining occupational and personal risk factors in the workplace will be discussed. Examples of ORF/PRF outcome interrelationships presented will focus on obesity, physical inactivity, prescription opiate and benzodiazepine use, ethnicity, and exposure biomonitoring and health effect biomarkers for occupational and personal risk factors. Future considerations and ORFs, PRFs, and issues in Total Worker Health® will be discussed. This session may be of particular interest to residents and recent graduates.
