Abstract

General population job exposure matrices (JEM) are useful tools to estimate workplace physical exposures in population studies. The French CONSTANCES JEM and American O*NET JEM demonstrated similar exposure-disease associations as individual-level directly observed exposures. JEM can be applied cross-nationally. Combining complementary variables between two JEM and between JEM and individual-level directly observed exposures improved prediction of health conditions.
