For instance, young people are generally capable of lifting and carrying greater weights than their elders, and people with a high level of education are likely to be more resilient to certain mental stressors and to have more coping abilities at their disposal than those less well educated. The model described above can serve the reader as a guide to the rest of this book. There is no intention, however, of attempting to verify the model with empirical material. The block 'macro-determinants of the quality of working life' is discussed in Chapter 4, the block 'quality of working life' in Chapter 5, the blocks 'macro-determinants of work capacity' and 'indicators of work capacity' in Chapter 6, and finally the block 'health and well-being' in Chapter 7.
