  1. Odds-Ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI)
  2. aReported results are those from complete case analyses that included participants with no missing data for the variables of interest (suicide ideation, all occupational exposures, covariates). The observed associations were similar using all available data for each occupational exposure
  3. bMedian cut-off of the total sample was used to classify workers in low or high exposure groups
  4. cAdjusted for age, marital status, social support outside work, life events before the age of 18, life events within the last 3 years, occupation, and economic activity of the company
