2. Health risks are created in the workplace as a result of the existence of what conditions? See page 68 for the list.
3. What is the definition of high job strain and what health conditions are linked to it?

(Note: The OECD database is useful for comparative research or just learning about the labour market dynamics of different countries. In case this database is of interest to you, there are many other datasets/indicators, besides job strain, which can be accessed via the left hand side of the screen (e.g., earnings, employment protection, labour force statistics, trade unions and collective bargaining, etc.).
5. Studies (from outside our textbook) have found manual labour is linked to greater risk of early death than those with more sedentary jobs. Do you think workers who are employed in high manual labour, high stress and high risk working environments are compensated for the toll it takes on their minds and bodies?

Jackson, Andrew and Mark Thomas, Work and Labour in Canada: Critical Issues (2017), Chapter 7
