Zusammenfassung

Nowadays, technology plays a central role in workplaces, enabling the speedy production of goods and services and facilitating communication and innovation processes. This report examines the different categories of technology used in workplaces in order to gauge their influence on working conditions and health outcomes. The analysis is based on findings from the Fourth Working Conditions Survey carried out across 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. The findings reveal that it is not so much the technology itself but rather the associated working conditions that put workers’ health and safety at risk. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

Im Anschluss an die Erhebung 2005 hat die Stiftung weitere eingehende Analysen ihrer Ergebnisse zu Schlüsselthemen im Bereich der Arbeitsbedingungen in der EU durchgeführt.

Die Untersuchung befasste sich mit den vier Kategorien von Technologien, die in Betrieben eingesetzt werden – Maschinen, Computer, Maschinen und Computer sowie keine Technologie –, um ihren Einfluss auf Arbeitsbedingungen und gesundheitliche Folgen zu messen.
