Objectif : Le but de l’étude était d’explorer la relation entre les familles d’emploi et la tension artérielle (TA).

Objective: The purpose of the study was to explore the relationship between job families and blood pressure (BP). Methods: Subjective (self-report questionnaire) and objective (on-site health screening including blood pressure) data were collected at a large academic institution from employees, which were categorized into 10 job families based on Human Resources career paths. Analysis included descriptive statistics and multivariate logistic regression. Results: A total of 20,198 employees participated. Some specific job families were significantly associated with having high BP (p < 0.01). Being 58 years old and older (OR 2.33, p < 0.01) and being male (OR 2.52, p < 0.01) were the strongest predictors for elevated BP. Conclusions: Certain job families may need interventions that target and mitigate particular circumstances in order to reduce and maintain lower BP levels. Lisez l’article
