Work-related health and ill-health means that there must be a connection between the individual's health problems, work capacity and work requirements. The health problem must be caused by or worsened by the work, or there must be a suspicion that it is related to the work to fall into this category. This requirement differs from public health care, where illness does not necessarily have a connection to the workplace or the work performed.
