Describe how O*NET job descriptors can be used as a surrogate measure of exposure to occupational hazards when conducting occupational health research. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of using O*NET indicator ratings to estimate occupational exposure levels. Discuss the importance of identifying possible linkages between long-term exposure to heavy work demands and the risk of contracting chronic arthritis later in life.
