OSSANDON OTERO, Javier Alejandro; CASMA LOPEZ, Rainiero Moisés  y  MATA HERRERA, Manuel de la. Middle aged sorkers' quality of life after workplace interventions: a systematic review. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2019, vol.65, n.256, pp.199-216.  Epub 22-Mar-2021. ISSN 1989-7790.


There is currently a marked demographic change in which the active population is in aging process. Actually around 50% is 45 or older. It is therefore a challenge and a necessity for our society to try to improve the quality of life of middle-aged workers.


To identify and evaluate if the implementation of interventions improve the quality of life of middle-aged workers at the workplace.


A systematic review based on the literature published since 2004 until December 2018 has been carried out in several scientific databases: MEDLINE, EMBASE, LILACS, SCIELO and SCOPUS.


372 records were obtained and a total of 11 articles were selected (10 clinical trials and 1 cohort study) after the search formula application and the exclusion and inclusion criteria. There were statistically significant results in different workplace interventions that managed to improve worker's quality of life.


The evidence compiled in this systematic review is consistent with the capacity of interventions that promote health and well-being at the workplace to improve the quality of life of middle-aged workers. It would however, be advisable to carry out new studies in order to expand this field of knowledge.
