Abstract (type = abstract)
Objective: To assess if organizational factors are predictors of workers' health and productivity after the World Trade Center attacks.Methods: We conducted a survey of 750 workers and compared those who had direct exposures to the World Trade Center attacks (south of Canal Street workers; primary victims) with those less directly exposed (north of Canal Street workers; other victims and non-victims).Results: South of Canal Street workers reported headache more frequently than north of Canal Street workers did (P = 0.0202). Primary victims reported headache and cough more frequently than did other victims and non-victims (P = 0.0086 and 0.0043, respectively). Defensive organizational culture was an independent predictor of cough and job stress, and job stress was an independent predictor of on-the-job productivity losses.Conclusion: Organizational variables may modify health and productivity outcomes after a large-scale traumatic event in the workplace.
