The ICOH Scientific Committee on Cardiology in Occupational Health (ICOH-CVD) serves a professional network of researchers, occupational health physicians and public health workers throughout the world concerned about the impact of work and work-related factors on cardiovascular health, in particular hypertension and ischemic heart disease (IHD). Linking economic globalization to the changing nature of work and its impact on the risk of CVD, and focusing on research, worksite interventions, and public health, we are organized as an official committee of the International Commission of Occupational Health. Our work focuses on identifying work-related risk factors for CVD, including both the physical and psychosocial work environment, the interplay of social class, work and health, interventions to reduce the burden of unhealthy jobs, and public policy concerns to foster change in working conditions.
