Categories of disability and residual work capacity with part time work in a region of croatia


, : Categories of disability and residual work capacity with part time work in a region of croatia. Arhiv za Higijenu Rada i Toksikologiju 41(3): 275-284

A retrospective evaluation of disability was carried out in a group of workers with residual work capacity for part-time work from the region of Slavonski Brod over a ten-year period. The evaluation comprised disability assessment, estimation of the reliability of primary diagnosis with respect to disability assessment, and determination of the period between the assessment of residual work ability for part-time work and retirement due to disability. The disability category residual work capacity for part-time work was assigned to 1,029 persons, and was most frequently caused by cardiovascular diseases. Disability pension was based mostly on the diagnoses of mental disorders and cardiovascular diseases and was received by 1,365 persons. With part-time workers who had their residual work ability assessed on the basis of cardiovascular diseases and mental disorders, working part-time was only a temporary, short-term solution, because as soon as within a year, after a regular check-up, they were given disability pension owing to deterioration of primary disease. On the other hand, workers with diseases of the locomotor system as primary diagnosis, who had worked part-time for several years, often had disability pension granted because of some other disease. A detailed analysis among 426 still active workers with residual work capacity showed disability to have been assessed mostly on the ground of diseases of the locomotor system. Functional disorders were usually light to moderate, and working conditions often inappropriate. It is considered that the categories residual work capacity with full-time work at a more appropriate workplace, with a change of occupation or without it, and altered work capacity would have been better applicable in the majority of cases.
