The authors focuses on the incorporation of working organization into occupational health research. They pointed out that occupational health researchers have been slowing down to incorporate broader workplace features into their exposure assessment protocols and epidemiological study designs. However, the authors are seeking to stimulate dialogue within the occupational health community about the organizational context and its implications for aetiological research and hazard control.
