Background The COVID-19 crisis has radically changed the way people live and work. While most studies have focused on prevailing negative consequences, potential positive shifts in everyday life have received less attention. Thus, we examined the actual and perceived overall impact of the COVID-19 crisis on work and private life, and the consequenc...

The COVID-19 pandemic and remote working challenge employees' possibilities to recover from work during their off-job time. We examined the relationship between off-job crafting and burnout across the COVID-19 crisis. We used a longitudinal research design, comprising one wave collected before the onset of the pandemic, in March 2019 (T1), and one...

The present commentary discusses how social media big data could be used in mental health research to assess the impact of major global crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. We first provide a brief overview of the COVID-19 situation and the challenges associated with the assessment of its global impact on mental health using conventional methods....

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused detrimental global consequences for public health, health-care systems, economies, and society in general. The Czech Republic was one of the most affected countries in the world regarding daily cases increases during the first waves of the pandemic. The present study investigates the association between coping resou...

Our study examines the core concept of salutogenesis—sense of coherence (SOC)—in relation to off-job crafting (OJC) and mental well-being (MWB). The original salutogenic model of health mainly addresses the protective function of SOC against adversity. In our study, we focus on the recently proposed path of positive health development that captures...

The aim of this paper is the adaptation of the Sense of National Coherence scale (SONC) in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the management of which is, to some extent, a national topic. Antonovsky's Sense of Coherence (SOC), i.e. perceived comprehensibility, meaningfulness and manageability of one’s life, is considered one of the main concepts...

The COVID-19 pandemic induced considerable changes regarding our working and private lives. This study aimed to examine the psychosocial effects of the COVID-19 crisis on German and Swiss employees. We analyzed the impact of the crisis on working and private life, well-being and health indicators. We tried to understand how the salutogenic behavior...
Article
Full-text available
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the universal chaos created by it, this study explores the role of sense of coherence (Soc, Antonovsky, 1979) and how it enables coping with a stressful situation and staying well. SOC is a generalized orientation which allows one to perceive the world as comprehensible, manageable, and meaningful. In an at...

Introduzione. Qualità della comunicazione (chiarezza, tempismo, rilevanza, frequenza) e autoriflessività collettiva nei team sanitari determinano maggiore soddisfazione lavorativa e migliore qualità di trattamento dei pazienti. Pertanto, tali evidenze devono informare interventi di promozione del lavoro sanitario in gruppo. Obiettivi. Fornire valut...

In this project, we focused on creating and implementing digital tools which help employees to manage work-related stress on an individual and team level. Two main digital intervention tools are implemented in this research. The combination of these two online tools is implemented in three European organisations. The interventions will be implement...

INTRODUCTION: The visual scanning techniques used by helicopter pilots are a critical skill to accomplish safe and correct landing. According to the human information processing theory, visual scanning techniques can be analyzed as a function of fixation location, number, and duration of fixations. METHODS: This study assessed these techniques in e...

Helicopter shipboard landing is a cognitively complex task that is challenging both for pilots and their crew. Effective communication, accurate reading of the flight instruments, as well as monitoring of the external environment are crucial for a successful landing. In particular, the final phases of landing are critical as they imply high workloa...

Previous studies have focused on the combined impact of psychological factors, situational influences, built environment characteristics and mobility constraints on mobility behaviors. However, no studies have yet focused on exploring how the impact of these predictors change because of different distances to travel among university commuters. Ther...

The present study focuses on visual scanning techniques of expert and novice helicopter pilots during an open sea flight simulation in two different workload conditions. Twelve helicopter pilots were involved. Mental workload was assessed through psycho-physiological (EDA and HR) and psychological measures (NASA-TLX). The pilots’ performance was as...

Czech society has been increasingly more liberal toward LGBTI individuals and their parenting rights. However, the Czech legislative system still does not treat same-sex couples equally to heterosexual couples, and does not grant them the right to get married, nor to jointly adopt children. Attitudes of professionals who work with children and fami...

One major issue when designing exoskeletons is the lack of requirements, guidelines and performance analysis tools. Specifically, there is the need to address the usability and the practical value of exoskeleton technologies. Furthermore, recent literature highlights the importance of better exploring the human-exosystem interaction to improve huma...

Recent reports indicate an increase in mental health problems among the general EU population in recent years. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and public organisations are particularly vulnerable as they have often scarce knowledge and resources to effectively manage workers’ mental health and wellbeing. The general aim of the H-WORK project is to design, implement and validate effective multi-level assessment and intervention toolkits providing new products and services to promote mental health in public organisations and SMEs, evaluate individual and organisational outcomes of the adopted measures, and provide recommendations for employers, occupational health professionals and policymakers. The project aims to design, implement and exploit an integrated toolkit (H-TOOLS) which will provide managers and CEOs to effectively assess organisational psychosocial risk (HAT), implement the most appropriate interventions (HIT), and evaluate individual and organisational outcomes of the adopted measures (HET). Implementation of the H-WORK Toolkits will occur in ten intervention sites across five European countries, including five public organisations (healthcare, higher education, governmental) and five SMEs. Moreover, the data and experience generated during the implementation process will allow for development of further H-WORK products and services. Specifically, H-WORK will design, test and deploy the H-WORK Innovation Platform which will include novel digital services such as Benchmarking Calculator and Decision Support System that will facilitate the spread and uptake of the H-WORK solutions across Europe, and ensure the long-term sustainability of the project outcomes. The H-WORK project will significantly contribute to coordinated strategies for occupational health and safety and will foster health, social and economic prosperity in the EU.
