Abstract

Burnout is frequent although few statistics on occupational diseases (OD) due to burnout are shown. A study on INAIL (Italian National Institute against accidents and occupational diseases) occupational disease records due to “mental and behavioural disorders” (ICD X, 2010) in a quinquennial 2013–2017 was conceived. Results show poor declaration and low compensation rate of these OD that are not listed. In the case of OD not listed worker has to prove the relation between work and health disorder. Women present a lower compensation rate in OD out of the list (16.2% women vs 21,6% men, p < 0.05) and higher claims of “mental and behavioural disorders” (1.7% women vs 0.5% men, p < 0.05) where burnout is included. Neurosis are the most frequent mental disorders (77% women vs 72.4% men; p < 0.01), followed by mood disorders (3.6% women vs 3.9% men, p < 0.05). Insert burnout in ICD X and the list of OD is a gender issue.
