Resumen

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.

    El uso de la tecnología y las condiciones de trabajo en la Unión Europea - Resumen

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Tras la encuesta de 2005, Eurofound ha hecho un análisis exhaustivo de sus resultados atendiendo a ciertos aspectos clave de las condiciones de trabajo en la UE. Una de las cuestiones analizadas es la relación entre el uso de la tecnología, las condiciones de trabajo y la salud y el bienestar de los trabajadores en Europa. El estudio distingue cuatro categorías en las tecnologías utilizadas en los lugares de trabajo (maquinaria, ordenadores, maquinaria y ordenadores y ninguna tecnología) para medir su influencia en las condiciones de trabajo y sus repercusiones sobre la salud.
