Abstract

Current classification of obesity, based on BMI, presents some limitations in evaluating work-related impairments. In fact it does not provide information on presence and/or severity of clinical impairments associated with obesity. On the contrary, EOSS classification takes into account metabolic complications and functional limitations with restrictions of daily living and working activities. Aim of our study is to compare, in a group of obese workers, the different utility for precautionary and work-eligibility purposes of these two classifications. Results on our study population suggest that a more systematic use of the EOSS classification might be useful in occupational medicine.
