Participation in pooled analyses
 

  • The cohort is potentially interested in participating in pooled analyses of (European) occupational cohort studies (note pooled analyses also includes remote decentralized analyses that would not require any transfer of primary data as well as meta-analyses).

Main aim of cohort, please briefly describe the main objectives of the cohort
  Evaluate sun exposure habits of groups of outdoor workers at baseline and after preventive intervention; studying the association with possible UV related adverse effects
Study design (please select as many as appropriate)
 

  • Prospective cohort
  • Intervention study

Source population (please select as many as appropriate)
 

  • Industry / occupation-based

Comparators (please select as many as appropriate)
 

  • External comparison of workers with other exposure

Inclusion criteria
