Purpose of the study In the context of the general population aging and the increasing cost of work disability, public authorities pay special attention to the employability of workers with health problems. In order to consider strategies for reducing the duration of disability and promoting the return-to-work, the Belgian Federal Public Service Work and Employment wished to have an update of the available scientific evidence on this topic. Methods This literature review is based on articles published in English between 2001 and 2011 and extracted from the MEDLINE database. The review first part deals with long term incapacity risk factors while the second one describes evidence as regards prevention measures and intervention strategies. Results Some risk factors significantly associated with long term disability have been identified: being employed in heavy jobs, fear-avoidance reactions and psychosocial occupational factors such as job dissatisfaction, lack of work control, insufficient support, poor relationships with colleagues, but also the worker own perception of his ability to return to work. Early detection of these perceived barriers to return to work is needed. With regard to intervention strategies, the review, limited to low back pain associated work absences, supports the interest of ergonomic changes in the working environment and the importance of participative interventions. The communication between the return to work actors (i.e. clinical physicians, occupational physicians, employers, insurers and the worker himself) is a key factor in the success of the intervention. Finally, in heavier workload occupations, promoting a systematic access to a transitory light duty position appears to be an interesting guideline. [less ▲]
