In many jobs workers are exposed to a combination of potential hazards. Both research and legislation usually considers factors in isolation and we currently have little knowledge of the impact of combinations of factors on health and performance efficiency. Our current research is addressing the issue of combined effects of occupational health hazards and aims to increase our knowledge of the topic by reviewing the literature, conducting appropriate secondary analyses of existing databases, collecting new data on accidents at work, and carrying out laboratory studies of the effects of combinations of potential stressors on physiological functioning, performance efficiency and subjective reports of mood.
