Author: Hodge E.P.
Monteiro I.
Abstract: The inclusion of disabled people in society is a current concern in many countries. The objectiveofthis study wastoevaluate the work abilityofdisabled workers in comparison to non-disabled workers. The sample for this cross-sectional study consisted of a total of 293 workers, from which 13 were disabled with either a physical, mental or hearing deficiency. A socio-demographic and life style questionnaire and the Work Ability Index were used. The subjects were young, well educated, and were engaged in physical, leisure and other activities outside of work. A lower WAI score was associated with being disabled and with the perception that the work caused fatigue and or stress. In line with this, the inclusion of disabled people in the work force must occur simultaneously with actions to improve overall work conditions. In this way, disabled workers may become effectively included and remain active until retirement age. © 2009 Taylor & Francis Group.
