Abstract

Work-related disorders are a growing issue for office workers and represent a significant burden to public health. Work aspects such as sitting for prolonged periods and occupational stress are modifiable risk factors highly associated with occupational disorders in office workers. The PrevOccu-pAI Project (Prevention of Occupational Disorders in Public Administrations based on Artificial Intelligence) objectively investigates relationships between a variety of occupational risk factors and physiological outcomes. For this purpose, a data acquisition protocol was carried out at the Portuguese Tax and Customs Authority. Physiological, movement, and environmental signals from office workers were acquired during five consecutive workdays using a smartphone, a smartwatch, and two electromyography sensors. Additionally, demographic, occupational, and pain information were collected through questionnaires. The present manuscript provides a detailed description of the PrevOccupAI acquisition protocol. The collected data is used to gather knowledge regarding modifiable factors at the individual and organisational levels.
